### Abstract

In this paper a new type of universal logic modules (ULM's) called the Q-type is presented. The Q- type ULM's are superior to the existing ULM's in the sense that they require fewer input/output terminals when n is greater than or equal to 6 where n is the number of input variables of the ULM. Various techniques for synthesizing a logic network with a small number of ULM's are discussed. A much simpler type of modules, which is suitable to realize any symmetric or partially symmetric function and can be used as auxilliary building blocks for realizing any given logic function, is presented. A special kind of ULM's, called serially controlled ULM's which has only n plus 3 input/outputterminals, is also presented. For a ULM of this kind the signals for specifying the logic function to be realized are serially applied to one of its input terminals.
