Logic gate

Updated: 04/26/2017 by Computer Hope

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 or "on," and 0 indicates no power or "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.
