DIGITAL ELECTRONICS : Logic Gates

By Yash Bansal|Updated : September 6th, 2021

Logic Gate is a very important topic from an exam point of view. In this article, we will discuss the important concepts, Formulas, and notes regarding the Logic Gate.                                                                                     

Logic Gates

A logic gate is an idealised or physical device implementing a Boolean function, that is, it performs a logical operation in one or more logical inputs and produces a single logical output.

The logic gates can be classified as

  • NOT, AND, OR are basic gates.
  • NAND, NOR are universal gates.
  • EXOR, EXNOR are an arithmetic circuit or code converter or comparators.

NOT Gate (Inverter)

Truth Table for NOT Gate:

 

Circuit Symbol for NOT Gate:

AND Gate:

Truth Table for AND Gate:

 

Circuit Symbol for AND Gate:

Properties of AND logic:

  1. Commutative Law: AB = BA
  2. Associative Law: ABC = (AB) C = (AC)B = A(BC)

OR Gate:

Truth Table:

Circuit Symbol for OR Gate:

Properties of OR logic:

  1. Commutative Law: A + B = B + A
  2. Associative Law: (A + B + C) = (A + B) + C = A + (B+ C)

NAND Gate:

Truth Table:

 Circuit Symbol for NAND Gate:

 

NOR Gate:

Truth Table:

 Circuit Symbol for NOR Gate:

  • NOR gate follows commutative law but not follow associative law

EXOR Gate:

Truth Table:

 

Circuit Symbol for EXOR Gate:

Properties of EXOR Logic:

  • Enable input = 0
  • Disable input = 1
  • It is also called stair case switch.
  • It is widely used in parity generation and detection.
  • When both the inputs are different, then output becomes high or logic 1.
  • When both the inputs are same, then output becomes low or logic 0.

EX-NOR Gate:

Truth Table:

Circuit Symbol for EX-NOR Gate:

 

 

 

Properties of EXNOR Gate:

  • Enable input = 1
  • Disable input = 0
  • When both the inputs are same, then output .becomes high or logic 1.
  • When both the inputs are different, then output becomes low or logic 0.

Logic Gate Conversions
