3 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 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

4 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) The most basic digital building block is the inverter

5 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
