Multi-Level Logic Synthesis Using ZBDDs

Logic synthesis and optimization techniques have been used successfully for practical design of VLSI circuits in recent years. Multi-level logic, Optimization is important in logic synthesis systems and a lot of research in this field has been undertaken[MKLC87, MF89, Ish92]. In particular, the algebraic logic minimization method, such as MIS[BSVW87], is the most successful and prevalent way to attain this optimization. It is based on cube set (or two-level logic) minimization and generates multi-level logic from cube sets by applying a weak-division method. This approach is efficient for functions that can be expressed in a feasible size of cube sets, but we are sometimes faced with functions whose cube set representations grow exponentially with the number of inputs. Parity functions and full-adders are examples of such functions. This is a problem of the cube-based logic synthesis methods.
