For an n-variable Boolean function, there are 2[to the nth power] fixed polarity Reed-Muller (FPRM) forms. In this paper, a frame of power dissipation estimation for FPRM functions is presented and the polarity conversion is introduced to minimize the power for FPRM functions. Based on searching the best polarity for low power dissipation, an optimal algorithm is proposed and implemented in C. The algorithm is tested on seven single output functions from MCNC benchmark circuits. The experimental results are shown in this paper.
