1. Introduction to digital circuits: the inverter In digital circuits, digitally-encoded information is represented by means of two distinct voltage ranges: V V MAX V OH V OL logic 0 V MIN logic 1 undefined region The Static De nition Logic 0: V MIN ± V ± V OL Logic 1: V OH ± V ± V MAX Unde ned logic value: V ± V ± V OH Logic operations are performed using logic gates . Simplest logic operation of all: inversion ² inverter 2 6.012 Spring 2009 Lecture 11

Ideal inverter IN OUT 1 OUT=IN 0 1 IN 0 Circuit representation and ideal transfer function: V OUT v + V + V OUT =V IN V + + + 2 V OUT V IN - - 0 0 V M = V + V + V IN 2 De ne switching point or logic threshold : V M ± input voltage for which V OUT = V IN – For 0 ± V IN < V M ² V OUT = V + – For V M < V IN ± V + ² V OUT = 0 Ideal inverter returns well de ned logical outputs (0 or V + ) even in the presence of considerable noise in V IN (from voltage spikes, crosstalk, etc.) ² signal is regenerated !
