A method for the synthesis of large MultiValued Logic Networks (MVLNs) using MultiValued 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 of each edge in the graph. The resulting circuits have nice properties with respect to area/delay estimation and power dissipation. Experimental results are given to illustrate the efficiency of the approach. 1. Introduction The use of Decision Diagrams (DDs) is becoming increasingly popular in the area of electronic design automation. DDs represent a function as a directed acyclic graph, and have generated great interest due to their ability to represent certain functions in a very compact form. DDs can be regarded as representing the function in a behavioral, rather than structural form...
