For the automated design of PLAs (programmable logic arrays) with a minimum size, computationally efficient procedures are needed that can minimize functions of a large number of variables. For such minimization procedures, excessively long processing time and an excessively large memory requirement are major problems to overcome. An absolute minimization procedure is presented for standard PLAs with reduced computation time and memory space. The improvement achieved by this procedure, which is based on the decomposition of ratio sets, is mainly due to the detection of all essential prime implicants during the derivation of inclusion functions and to the merger of two procedures previously published by R.B. Cutler and S. Muroga (1987) into one efficient procedure
