How logic gates make electronic designs more efficient
Logic gates are used in electronics to implement a Boolean function. They produce a single logical output by performing a logical operation on logical inputs. Computer memory, registers and multiplexers constitute logic circuits. Diodes and transistors are used to implement logic gates. They serve the role of electronic switches. To improve the efficiency of electronic designs, logic gates are cascaded in a similar way as the composition of Boolean logic. They allow for the development of physical model of Boolean logic. The construction of logic gates using MOSFET makes it possible for use in circuit design to increase efficiency as well as the sum of individual gates.
Efficiency of the electronic design can be increased by building complete logic system that encompasses relays and valves. Resistor-transistor logic (RTL) makes up the simplest logic gate. Cascading RTL can be done to provide complex functions. This makes it possible to use RTL in integrated circuits. Using diodes in diode-transistor logic (DTL) to replace resistors increases the speed and density of electronics. The use of CMOS logic helps to reduce the consumption of power. Increasing efficiency of logic gates also involves wiring the output of one logic gate into the inputs of other logic gates. Thus, it is possible to build systems with varying degree of complexity without internal functions of the gates. The high voltage semi conductor logic gate has an input that sinks current that gets inside it. This results in the production of a low impedance voltage being produced at the output. The practical applications that results from operation of logic gates include reduced reduction of power consumption, increased speed of electronic devices. An increase in the speed of these devices implies an increase in efficiency.
