Publication# Boolean Rewriting Strikes Back: Reconvergence- Driven Windowing meets Resynthesis

Abstract

The paper presents a novel DAG-aware Boolean rewriting algorithm for restructuring combinational logic before technology mapping. The algorithm, called window rewriting, repeatedly selects small parts of the logic and replaces them with more compact implementations. Window rewriting combines small-scale windowing with a fast heuristic Boolean resynthesis. The former uses sophisticated structural analysis to capture reconvergent paths in a multi-output window. The latter re-expresses the multi-output Boolean function of the window using fewer gates if possible. Experiments on the EPFL benchmarks show that a single iteration of window rewriting outperforms state-of-the-art AIG rewriting repeated until convergence in both quality and runtime.

NAND gate

In digital electronics, a NAND gate (NOT-AND) is a logic gate which produces an output which is false only if all its inputs are true; thus its output is complement to that of an AND gate. A LOW (0) output results only if all the inputs to the gate are HIGH (1); if any input is LOW (0), a HIGH (1) output results. A NAND gate is made using transistors and junction diodes. By De Morgan's laws, a two-input NAND gate's logic may be expressed as =+, making a NAND gate equivalent to inverters followed by an OR gate.

XNOR gate

The XNOR gate (sometimes ENOR, EXNOR or NXOR and pronounced as Exclusive NOR) is a digital logic gate whose function is the logical complement of the Exclusive OR (XOR) gate. It is equivalent to the logical connective () from mathematical logic, also known as the material biconditional. The two-input version implements logical equality, behaving according to the truth table to the right, and hence the gate is sometimes called an "equivalence gate". A high output (1) results if both of the inputs to the gate are the same.

XOR gate

XOR gate (sometimes EOR, or EXOR and pronounced as Exclusive OR) is a digital logic gate that gives a true (1 or HIGH) output when the number of true inputs is odd. An XOR gate implements an exclusive or () from mathematical logic; that is, a true output results if one, and only one, of the inputs to the gate is true. If both inputs are false (0/LOW) or both are true, a false output results. XOR represents the inequality function, i.e., the output is true if the inputs are not alike otherwise the output is false.
