Chapter Goals Introduce binary digital logic concepts Explore the voltage transfer characteristics of ideal and nonideal inverters Define logic levels and logic states of logic gates Introduce the concept of noise margin Present measures of dynamic performance of logic devices Review of Boolean algebra Investigate simple transistor implementations of the inverter and other logic circuits Explore basic design techniques of logic circuits
Brief History of Digital Electronics Digital electronics can be found in many applications in the form of microprocessors, microcontrollers, PCs, DSPs, and an uncountable number of other systems. The design of digital circuits has progressed from resistor- transistor logic (RTL) and diode-transistor logic (DTL) to transistor-transistor logic (TTL) and emitter-coupled logic (ECL) to NMOS and now complementary MOS (CMOS) The density and number of transistors in microprocessors has increased from 2300 in the 1971 4-bit 4004 microprocessor to 25 million in the more recent IA-64 chip and it is projected to reach over one billion transistors by 2010

Ideal Logic Gates Binary logic gates are the most common style of digital logic The output will consist of either a 0 (low) or a 1 (high) (Positive Logic Convention) The most basic digital building block is the inverter
The Ideal Inverter The ideal inverter has the following voltage transfer characteristic (VTC) and is described by the following symbol V + and V - are the supply rails, and V H and V L describe the high and low logic levels at the output

Logic Level Definitions An inverter operating with power supplies at V + and 0 V can be implemented using a switch with a resistive load
Logic Voltage Level Definitions V L – The nominal voltage corresponding to a low-logic state at the output of a logic gate for v i = V H V H – The nominal voltage corresponding to a high-logic state at the output of a logic gate for v i = V L V IL – The maximum input voltage that will be recognized as a low input logic level V IH – The maximum input voltage that will be recognized as a high input logic level V OH – The output voltage corresponding to an input voltage of V IL V OL – The output voltage corresponding to an input voltage of V IH

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
