Solution Summary

The expert examines different logic family gates. The w.r.t logic gates are analyzed.

Solution Preview

There are several different families of logic gates. Each family has its capabilities and limitations, its advantages and disadvantages.

(1) Diode Logic (DL)

Diode logic gates use diodes to perform AND and OR logic functions. Diodes have the property of easily passing an electrical current in one direction, but not the other. Thus, diodes can act as a logical switch.

Diode logic gates are very simple and inexpensive, and can be used effectively in specific situations. However, they cannot be used extensively, as they tend to degrade digital signals rapidly. In addition, they cannot perform a NOT function, so their usefulness is quite limited.

(2) Resistor-Transistor Logic (RTL)

Resistor-transistor logic gates use Transistors to combine multiple input signals, which also amplify and invert the resulting combined signal. Often an additional transistor ...
