    Yes that is the only instruction he said to us. I've been struggling with this project and I've only got 2 weeks to work on it. Would please give me the link of the software you are talking about sir?

    Yes sir , I understand the instructions properly. He only said that we can only use those IC/Gates that he discussed from us, which is AND,OR,NOT,NAND,NOR,XOR, XNOR,COMPARATOR(BCD to 7segment).
    Can you please give me the link of the software you mentioned sir ?

    As an alternative, if you are not required to reduce the boolean algebra, each pixel can be solved with a 6 input AND gate and inverters on the right combination of inputs.

    I assume you are asking if it is okay to provide a link to the software?

    Is it available as freeware or sharewhare? Is there a free trial associated with it?

    I'll put it up for consideration amongst the staff/owners, as I'm not sure I have a firm handle on the owner's intent on this point.

    Thanks for asking, BTW.

    Actually, a link to a website that would solve his kmaps for him. Funny that he could find it (many, actually) himself with a simple Google search.

    A couple of us batted it around and we think it's okay. In general, I'm not fond of encouraging students to use such tools because most will abuse them and let the tool do their thinking. But, as you say, it's only a Google search away in any case.

    With permission of the mods, here is a nice one. I cannot guaranty its accuracy -- I've never used it:
