Abstract

This disclosure describes a programmable voter circuit that is implemented using simple adder blocks in a unique way. The circuit encodes the number of active inputs into a binary value that is compared with a programmed binary value to determine when "n" number of inputs have become active. This circuit concept permits an easy way to design programmable voter circuits for any number of inputs by simply reapplying the concept.
