NOR logic gate circuit diagram

NOR (not-or) is one type of Boolean logical operation. It accepts two binary digits as input, and produces one binary digit as output. It returns true (1) if both its inputs are false (0), and false if either of its inputs are true.

In computers, the NOR operation may be performed by a dedicated physical device, which is called a logic gate, and implemented as a transistor. A CPU may contain millions of such transistors, each as small as 1 nanometer.

NOR flash memory

NOR flash memory is a low-latency, persistent memory technology based on NOR logic gates. Its properties are similar to NAND flash memory.
