With the goal of making exclusive-OR formulations of switching functions more readily available to designers for implementation in LSI and VLSI technologies, we introduce the concept of an exclusive-OR space in which an exclusive-OR normal form is defined to correspond to the conventional disjunctive normal form. A geometrical representation of exclusive-OR space is described, and its various bases are listed and discussed.
