INPUT GROUPING OF LIGICAL CIRCUIT BY USE OF M-SEQUENCE CORRELATION

Abstract

A new method for grouping of relevant and equivalent inputs of a logical circuit was proposed by the authors by making use of pseudorandom M-sequence correlation. The authors show in this paper that it is possible to estimate the input grouping from a part of correlation functions when we admit small percentage of error, whereas it is impossible to reduce the data necessary to estimate the grouping by use of the truth table method. For example in case of 30-input logic circuit, the number of correlation functions necessary to calculate can be reducible from 1.07 * 10$^{9}$ to 465.
