The NAND Gate

The NAND gate is the-most difficult to understand. All the-others are English words, so they-are easier to understand.  thething about NOR & NAND gates is that-they are like OR or AND gates, followed-immediately by a NOT gate. .So if you find them just to difficult, you can always remember them like that.

Output Q 0 if and only if   A=B=1.

 A B Q 0 0 1 0 1 1 0 0 1 0 1 0

When asked to find a truth table for a circuit, it can-sometimes be helpful to use extra letters. These are usually X & Y, but any-letters can be used. The easiest way-would be to  look at the gate below.

The gates above are the-only gates you need to-know for the NEAB syllabus. But there is one other gate that is very useful. It is-called the eXclusive OR (XOR). You can buy-this in a chip, or you can build-your own. It can be constructed in the following way.
