  author={Rolf Drechsler and Mitchell A. Thornton and David Wessels},
A method for the synthesis of large Multi-Valued Logic Networks (MVLNs) using Multi-Valued Decision Diagrams (MDDs) is presented. The size of the resulting circuit is linear in the size of the original MDD. In contrast to previously presented approaches to circuit design using MDDs, here the nodes are not substituted by multiplexers. Instead , a small circuit is created representing the functionality o f each edge in the graph. The resulting circuits have nice properties with respect to area… CONTINUE READING
