This could be a downvoted question but I am asking because I am not able to get usable info via Google.
Are there any interesting combinatorial problems in the field of electronics circuits design? I am interested in solved problems and not in the high science.
I am asking this because we are looking for a diploma themas on Electrical Engineering faculty. We will try to guide and help our students (I am a part of staff) to solve these problems using a BDD package in a similar way as BDDs are used to solve 8-Queens problem and other combinatorial problems found in Knuth's book and various research papers.
We have Quine-McCluskey minimization, but are there also some more hardware-related problems?
