Truth Table: 4– 17 Logic diagram: a graphical representation of a circuit Each type of gate is represented by a specific graphical symbol Truth table: defines the function of a gate by listing all possible input combinations that the gate could encounter, and the corresponding output Truth Table
Gates: 4– 18 Gates Let’s examine the processing of the following six types of gates NOT AND OR XOR NAND NOR
Slide 19: 4– 19
Slide 20: 4– 20
NOT Gate: 4– 21 NOT Gate A NOT gate accepts one input value and produces one output value Figure 4.1 Various representations of a NOT gate
NOT Gate: 4– 22 NOT Gate By definition, if the input value for a NOT gate is 0, the output value is 1, and if the input value is 1, the output is 0 A NOT gate is sometimes referred to as an inverter because it inverts the input value
AND Gate: 4– 23 AND Gate An AND gate accepts two input signals If the two input values for an AND gate are both 1, the output is 1; otherwise, the output is 0 Figure 4.2 Various representations of an AND gate
Slide 24: 4– 24
Slide 25: 4– 25
OR Gate: 4– 26 OR Gate If the two input values are both 0, the output value is 0; otherwise, the output is 1 Figure 4.3 Various representations of a OR gate

Slide 28: 4– 28
Slide 29: 4– 29
XOR Gate: 4– 30 XOR Gate XOR, or exclusive OR, gate An XOR gate produces 0 if its two inputs are the same, and a 1 otherwise Note the difference between the XOR gate and the OR gate; they differ only in one input situation When both input signals are 1, the OR gate produces a 1 and the XOR produces a 0
XOR Gate: 4– 31 XOR Gate Figure 4.4 Various representations of an XOR gate
NAND and NOR Gates: NAND and NOR Gates The NAND and NOR gates are essentially the opposite of the AND and OR gates, respectively Figure 4.5 Various representations of a NAND gate Figure 4.6 Various representations of a NOR gate

Gates with More Inputs: 4– 36 Gates with More Inputs Gates can be designed to accept three or more input values A three-input AND gate, for example, produces an output of 1 only if all input values are 1 Figure 4.7 Various representations of a three-input AND gate

Constructing Gates: 4– 38 Constructing Gates A transistor is a device that acts, depending on the voltage level of an input signal, either as a wire that conducts electricity or as a resistor that blocks the flow of electricity A transistor has no moving parts, yet acts like a switch It is made of a semiconductor material, which is neither a particularly good conductor of electricity, such as copper, nor a particularly good insulator, such as rubber
Circuits: 4– 39 Circuits Two general categories In a combinational circuit , the input values explicitly determine the output In a sequential circuit , the output is a function of the input values as well as the existing state of the circuit As with gates, we can describe the operations of entire circuits using three notations Boolean expressions logic diagrams truth tables
Combinational Circuits: 4– 40 Combinational Circuits Gates are combined into circuits by using the output of one gate as the input for another Page 99 AND AND OR
Combinational Circuits: 4– 41 Combinational Circuits Because there are three inputs to this circuit, eight rows are required to describe all possible input combinations This same circuit using Boolean algebra: (AB + AC) jasonm: Redo to get white space around table (p100) Page 100
Now let’s go the other way; let’s take a Boolean expression and draw: 4– 42 Now let’s go the other way; let’s take a Boolean expression and draw Consider the following Boolean expression: A(B + C) jasonm: Redo table to get white space (p101) Page 100 Page 101 Now compare the final result column in this truth table to the truth table for the previous example They are identical
Simple design problem: 4– 43 Simple design problem A calculation has been done and its results are stored in a 3-bit number Check that the result is negative by anding the result with the binary mask 100 Hint: a “mask” is a value that is anded with a value and leaves only the important bit
Now let’s go the other way; let’s take a Boolean expression and draw: 4– 44 Now let’s go the other way; let’s take a Boolean expression and draw We have therefore just demonstrated circuit equivalence That is, both circuits produce the exact same output for each input value combination Boolean algebra allows us to apply provable mathematical principles to help us design logical circuits
Adders: 4– 45 Adders At the digital logic level, addition is performed in binary Addition operations are carried out by special circuits called, appropriately, adders
Adders: 4– 46 Adders The result of adding two binary digits could produce a carry value Recall that 1 + 1 = 10 in base two A circuit that computes the sum of two bits and produces the correct carry bit is called a half adder Notice the Sum & Carry are NEVER both 1 . (XOR) (AND)
Adders: 4– 47 Adders Circuit diagram representing a half adder Two Boolean expressions: sum = A B carry = AB Page 103
Adders: 4– 48 Adders A circuit called a full adder takes the carry-in value into account Figure 4.10 A full adder
Adding Many Bits: 4– 49 Adding Many Bits To add 2 8-bit values, we can duplicate a full-adder circuit 8 times. The carry-out from one place value is used as the carry in for the next place value. The value of the carry-in for the rightmost position is assumed to be zero, and the carry-out of the leftmost bit position is discarded (potentially creating an overflow error).
