The paper explains the theory and design of a semi-custom integrated circuit (IC) for the generation of optimum polarity of a given Boolean function. Given the minterm coefficients of all the fixed polarities of the generalized Reed-Muller expansions, and identifies the polarity with the least number of terms. The chip can also convert the coefficients of the positive polarity Reed-Muller expansion to a sum of the products form. The design was completed using Mentor-Graphics VA.4 and the Mietec 0.7 μm CMOS Library.
