The K-Map or Karnaugh Map is a systematic method of simplifying a complex Boolean function or expression. The K-Map is basically a graph or a chart which consists of a certain number of adjacent cells. Each cell represents a particular combination of variables in either sum or product form. However, we can use the K-Map for simplifying a Boolean function in any number of variables, but it becomes tedious for functions involving five or more variables. In actual practice, we usually use K-Map for simplification of Boolean functions in upto six variables. A Boolean function in n variables can have ... Read More

K-Map or Karnaugh Map is a graphical method of simplifying Boolean expression. A K-Map composed of an arrangement of adjacent squares or cells, where each cell represent a particular combination of variables in sum or product form. In the K-map method, there is a useful condition namely, Don’t Care Condition, which helps in simplifying a Boolean function. The don’t care condition makes the grouping of variables in K-map easy. In this tutorial, we will understand the "don’t care" concept in K-map reduction with the help of solved examples. Sometimes, in a Boolean expression for certain input combinations, the value of ...

K-Map or Karnaugh Map is a simplification technique used to minimize a given complex Boolean function. K-Map or Karnaugh Map is a graph or chart which is composed of an arrangement of adjacent cells, where each cell of the K-Map represents a particular combination of variables in either sum or product form. The K-map can be used to simplify Boolean functions involving any number of variables. But, the simplification of a Boolean function using K-map becomes very complex for expressions involving five or more variables. Therefore, in actual practice, the K-map is limited to six variables. The number of cells ... Read More

Karnaugh Map (K-Map) K-Map is a graphical tool used for simplifying Boolean expressions represented in their standard form to obtain their minimal form. The K-Map is basically a graph or chart that composed of an arrangement of adjacent cells or squares, where each cell represents a particular combination of variables of the function either in sum or product form. The number of cells in the K-Map depends upon number of variables in the Boolean function, i.e., K-map has 2n adjacent cells, where n is the number of variables in the Boolean expression. Therefore, the number of cells in a 2 ... Read More

A K-Map or Karnaugh Map is a graphical method that used for simplifying the complex algebraic expressions in Boolean functions. This method avoid the use of complex theorems and equations manipulations. A K-Map is basically a special form of a truth table that can easily map out the values of parameters and gives a simplified Boolean expression. K-Map method is best suited for such Boolean functions that have two to four variables. However, it can be used for Boolean functions having five or six variables as well, but its process becomes more difficult with the increased number of variables in ... Read More
