Hi, I'm not quite sure how to tackle this digital logic problem. How do I minimise the number of NAND gates. I can Kmap it using the SOP and implement NAND gates to solve but I seem to have a lot of NAND gates in my solution. Any help is appreciated.

I don't understand the form of the question.

2) Implement the function given below using A minimum number of NAND gates only. F(A,B,C,D) = ∑m(7,10,11,13,15), d(A,B,C,D) = ∑m(5,14) The problem is repeated above. I have no idea why it includes "A minimum" rather than "a minimum". Is this problem from a textbook? I assume that A, B, C and D are binary inputs (0 or 1) to the function F, which gives 1 or 0, depending on the values of the inputs, and that converting the values 7, 10, etc. to 4bit binary gives 0111, 1010, etc., which represent the values of A, B, C and D for which the function gives 1, else it gives 0, except for inputs corresponding to 5 or 14, for which the value of F doesn't matter.

Hi...i am a new user here. I saw your query but did not understand properly. Could you please explain bit more? And what result you got for implementing the above suggested idea?
