# REALIZATION OF BOOLEAN EXPRESSIONS AND LOGIC FUNCTIONS USING ONLY NOR GATES -

### Example-1. Implement Boolean expression Y = (A+B).(C+D) using only NOR gates.

Solution: Y = (A+B).(C+D)

Step-1: Take double bar on both sides of the above expression

Y// = [(A+B).(C+D)]//

Step-2: Apply De Morgan’s Theorem to the inner bar of the right side of the above expression

Y// = Y = [(A+B)/+(C+D)/]/

Step-3: The above expression can easily be implemented using NOR GATES as shown in Fig. 1: Fig. 1

### Example-2. Implement F(A, B, C) = ΠM (0, 1, 2, 4) using NOR gates

Solution: To design a logic circuit using NOR gates, its logic function is to be written in POS (Product of Sum) form.

Using K-Map the logic function F(A, B, C) = ΠM (0, 1, 2, 4)  is simplified and written in SOP form as given below:

K-Map:

Boolean Expression of the given logic function in POS form will be

F(A, B, C) = (A+B).(B+C).(C+A)

Now, follow all the three steps of Example-1. The circuit would be:
