Logic gate

A computer circuit that performs the logic functions AND, NAND, NOR, NOT, OR, XNOR, and XOR. In the picture below, is an example diagram and explanation of each of the types of logic gates. In the diagram, A and B are the input power sources and Y is the output power, 1 represents power (ON) and 0 indicates no power (OFF). For example, in the first example of the Not gate if A had no power then the output would turn on and if A had power the output would turn off.
