Abstract : As a multiple-valued logic technology advanced rapidly, it is desirable to develop more cost-effective designs that effectively make use of the modular design techniques. A decomposition approach to the modular design of multiple-valued logic functions was presented previously by the authors. Based on this approach, systematic procedures are developed with simplification techniques which reduce the number of modules required in the design. The first step involves the process of partitioning functions into classes. Then, the representative building blocks for each function class are implemented using T-gates as the basic component. Design procedures are developed, so that all the functions in each class can be implemented directly by the representative building block. (Author)
