  • Characteristics

    • Inputs are limited too two values

      • Possible combinations

        • 2-inputs with 2-possible values => 4 permutations

        • Permutations 2n , n= number of inputs

Logic Gates

Boolean algebra

  • Exclusive OR Gate

    • The XOR gate (sometimes EOR gate) is a digital logic gate that implements exclusive disjunction - it behaves according to the truth table

      • A HIGH output (1) results if one, and only one, of the inputs to the gate is HIGH (1).

      • If both inputs are LOW (0) or both are HIGH (1), a LOW output (0) results.

  • Sample Gate Application

    • AND Gate

    • What would the Output be with: OR Gate, XOR Gate


  • Characteristics

    • Changes one logic level to the other

      • Often needed in digital circuits

        • Chapter 9 page 248

          • The “R” input to the flip-flop has an

            invert on it


Notice the line over BURST. It is called BURST NOT

Actual gate considerations
Actual Gate Considerations

  • Key Aspects

    • Will use NAND Gates as a sub fro all gates

  • Simplified /Improved Component Count

    • Two emitters almost as easy in manufacturing as one

      • Accomplished when artwork for the IC is made

      • Less components

      • Q1 functions like the three diodes it replaced, not as an amplifier

Actual gate considerations1
Actual Gate Considerations

  • Rise Time Problems

    • Caused by the input capacitance of gates driven high

      • TTL gates typically have a Fan out of 10

      • Thus the parallel connection the gate’s input capacitance is significant

      • Rise time will decrease if R2 was made smaller

        • However significant current would flow when Q2 was turned on

Actual gate considerations2
Actual Gate Considerations

  • Rise Time Problems

    • Solution

      • Use Totem Pole Output

    • Totem Pole Operation

      • When at least on input is low

        • Q2 is off, No current in R3 and Q4 is off

        • Q3 is on and R4 can be small and minimize the time constant for the output to go high

          • With a Low out Q3 is off

      • When both inputs are High

        • Reverse currents supply base of Q4

Actual gate considerations3
Actual Gate Considerations

  • Rise Time Problems

    • Totem Pole Operation

      • When both inputs are High

        • Reverse currents supply base of Q2, Q2 conducts

        • Base of Q4 goes high and Q4 conducts

        • Output is Low

      • Much faster Rise times

        • Since Q3 only conducts when the output is high, R3 can be sized to minimize the time constant and not cause a heat and efficiency problem
