[D1] LOGIC GATES Truth Table Input Output LIST OF LOGIC GATES 1. AND 2. OR 3. NOT 4. NAND 5. NOR 6. XOR 7. XNOR WORKING OUT TRUTH TABLES All of the logic gates obviously have a truth table. The formula for working out the number of possible outputs is 2n. N is the number of inputs. E.g. if there are 2 inputs than the formula would be 22. The answer is 4. This means that there are 4 possible outputs. Truth Table Input Output AB Q 00 0 01 0 10 0 11 1 1. AND GATE In AND gates the output can only be 1 if all the inputs are all 1 and if either of the output are 0 and the other input is 1 than output will always be 0. The two inputs AB and output Q represent the expression which in effect is right because the stands for AND. Truth Table Input Output ABC Z 000 1 001 1 010 1 011 1 100 1 101 1 110 1 111 0 2. NAND GATE A NAND gate can have more than 2 inputs. ...read more.


If the input is 1 than output is 0 and if the output is 1 than output has to be 0. The logical expression is which means Q = NOT A. 6. XOR Truth Table Input Output AB Q 00 0 01 1 10 1 11 0 This type of gate is implemented in computers for binary addition. If both the inputs are 0 than the output will also be 0 and if both the inputs are 1 than the output will also be 0. XOR is actually short for exclusive OR. The logical expression for the XOR gate is which means that Q = (A AND NOT B) OR (B AND NOT A). Truth Table Input Output AB Q 00 1 01 0 10 0 11 1 7. XNOR This type of gate is simply the inverse of XOR (exclusive OR). You can only get a result of 1 is both the inputs are same either 00 or 11. If the inputs are different e.g. 0 and 1 or 1 and 0 than the output will be 0. The expression for this type of gate is. ?? ?? ?? ??
