Using the approach of threshold logic, a method is presented for the synthesis of linkages to generate each of the 256 functions of three variables. Each function generator is composed of two parts: a separator linkage and a threshold linkage. The work shows that all 256 functions can be generated with different combinations of five basic separator linkages and a limited number of threshold linkages.
