Abstract
A shared binary decision diagram (SBDD) represents a multiple-output function, where nodes are shared among BDDs representing the various outputs. A partitioned SBDD consists of two or more SBDDs that share nodes. The separate SBDDs are optimized independently, often resulting in a reduction in the number of nodes over a single SBDD. We show a method for partitioning a single SBDD into two parts that reduces the node count. Amoung the benchmark functions tested, a node reduction of up to 23% is realized.
