Lecture 11 Digital Circuits (I) THE INVERTER Outline Introduction to digital circuits –The inverter • NMOS inverter with resistor pull-up Reading Assignment: Howe and Sodini; Chapter 5, Sections 5.1-5.3 1 6.012 Spring 2009 Lecture 11
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
