For the function y = f (a, b, c, d) depicted in the Karnaugh map of Figure E5.34, complete the following:

a. What are the earliest-rate implicants? Which of them are too redundant implicants?

b. Obtain an irreducible (minimum) SOP equation for y.

c. Draw a circuit that implements y using AND preludes in the earliest lamina and an OR prelude in the relieve lamina. Assume that the complemented versions of a, b, c, and d are too beneficial.

d. Repeat part (c) overhead using singly NAND preludes.
