# What is SOP and POS with examples?

## What is SOP and POS with examples?

In digital logic, the inputs and output of a function are in the form of binary numbers (boolean values) i.e., the values are either zero (0) or one (1). Representation of Boolean expression can be primarily done in two ways. They are as follows: Sum of Products (SOP) form. Product of Sums (POS) form.

**How do you convert SOP expression to POS expression?**

Conversion of SOP form to POS form There are the following steps used to convert the SOP function F = ∑ x, y, z (0, 2, 3, 5, 7) = x’ y’ z’ + z y’ z’ + x y’ z + xyz’ + xyz into POS: In the first step, we change the operational sign to ∏. We find the missing indexes of the terms, 001, 110, and 100.

**How do you solve POS K map?**

Steps to solve expression using K-map-

- Select K-map according to the number of variables.
- Identify minterms or maxterms as given in problem.
- For SOP put 1’s in blocks of K-map respective to the minterms (0’s elsewhere).
- For POS put 0’s in blocks of K-map respective to the maxterms(1’s elsewhere).

### Why is SOP called Minterm?

A product is called a minterm because it has minimum-satisfiability where as a sum is called a maxterm because it has maximum-satisfiability among all practically interesting boolean functions.

**Which of the following is incorrect SOP expression?**

3. Which of the following is an incorrect SOP expression? Explanation: The second expression is incorrect because it consists of two maxterms ANDed together. This makes it a POS or the product of sum expression.

**Are POS and SOP equivalent?**

Any logic system can be represented in two logically equivalent ways: as the OR’ing of AND’ed terms, known as the Sum Of Products (SOP) form; or as the AND’ing of OR’ed terms, known as the Product of Sums (POS) form.

#### How do you reduce POS expression?

The process for minimizing a POS expression is basically the same as for an SOP expression except that you group 0s to produce minimum sum terms instead of grouping 1s to produce minimum product terms. The rules for grouping the 0s are the same as those for grouping the 1s that you learned before.

**How do you simplify POS Boolean expressions?**

Product of Sums (POS) Form The product of sums form is a method (or form) of simplifying the Boolean expressions of logic gates. In this POS form, all the variables are ORed, i.e. written as sums to form sum terms. All these sum terms are ANDed (multiplied) together to get the product-of-sum form.

**What is canonical SOP form?**

Canonical SoP form means Canonical Sum of Products form. In this form, each product term contains all literals. So, these product terms are nothing but the min terms. Hence, canonical SoP form is also called as sum of min terms form. This Boolean function will be in the form of sum of min terms.

## What do you need to know about SOP and POS?

Sop and Pos digital Logic designing- In this tutorial you will learn about the SOP “Sum of Product” and POS “Product of Sum” terms in detail. We will discuss each one in detail and we will also solve some examples. The SOP (Sum of Product) and POS (Product of Sum) are the methods for deducing a particular logic function.

**Which is the best example of the Poisson distribution?**

The best way to explain the formula for the Poisson distribution is to solve the following example. a) What is the probability that it will not crash in a period of 4 months? b) What is the probability that it will crash once in a period of 4 months?

**How is the Poisson process used in real life?**

The Poisson process is often used to model the arrivals of customers in a waiting line, or the arrival of telephone calls at an exchange. The underlying idea is that of a large pop-ulation of potential customers, each of whom acts independently of all the others. The next

### Which is the canonical form in SOP or POS?

Expressing a Boolean function in SOP or POS is called Canonical form. This is the standard form, because further it cannot be simplified. So it’s the standard form. ∑ Symbol is only taken in Minterms and it also called. Now for the Maxterms we will consider 0’s from the table. For Maxterms consider 0’s in the truth table given above.
