Putting Logic Circuits to Work
In This Chapter
Implementing logic gates with transistors
Looking at TTL and CMOS integrated circuits
Building simple logic circuits
In this chapter you get the chance to work with circuits using the popular logic gates that we introduce in this minibook’s Chapter 2. We show you the basics of creating logic gates from simple transistor circuits and look at two popular integrated circuit (IC) families that provide prebuilt logic gates: transistor-transistor logic and complementary metal-oxide semiconductor logic, which sound less intimidating when abbreviated to TTL and CMOS.
Creating Logic Gates with Transistors
In Book II, Chapter 6, we discuss how you can use transistors as switches (if you want to know how transistors work, check out that chapter). In a nutshell, a voltage ...
