 Version 1.2 of 19 March 2018


The tikz-karnaugh package is a LaTeX used to draw Karnaugh maps. It uses TikZ to produce high quality graph up to 12 variables, but this limit depends on the TeX memory usage and can be different for you. It is very good for presentation since TikZ allows for a better control over the final appearance of the map. You can control colour, styles and distances.

It can be considered an upgrade of Andreas W. Wieland's karnaugh package towards TikZ supporting. Also, complex maps with solution (prime implicants) pointed out can be generated with external java software. 

It supports both American and traditional styles, though American style requires a litter extra effort.


If you are interest in generating the documentation departing from tikz-relay-doc.tex you are going to need pgfmanual-en-macros available at ctan:/graphics/pgf/base/doc/macros/pgfmanual-en-macros.tex

tikz-kar­naugh – Type­set Kar­naugh maps us­ing TikZ

The tikz-kar­naugh pack­age is a pack­age used to draw Kar­naugh maps. It uses TikZ to pro­duce high qual­ity graph up to 12 vari­ables, but this limit de­pends on the mem­ory us­age and can be dif­fer­ent for you. It is very good for pre­sen­ta­tion since TikZ al­lows for a bet­ter con­trol over the fi­nal ap­pear­ance of the map. You can con­trol colour, styles and dis­tances.

It can be con­sid­ered as an up­grade of An­dreas W. Wieland's kar­naugh pack­age to­wards TikZ sup­port­ing. Also, com­plex maps with so­lu­tion (prime im­pli­cants) pointed out can be gen­er­ated with ex­ter­nal java soft­ware.

It sup­ports both Amer­ica and tra­di­tional styles, though Amer­i­can style re­quires a lit­tle ex­tra ef­fort.
