Unformatted text preview: why things work is more important. This is a brief introduction and you may not understand all of it at Frst glance (this is not an electronics course where you will need to know these things in detail, but that comes in another course later). There are a few things that you should pay attention to and that logic designers should know. So read Textbook Appendix A Sections A.1, A.3–A.5, & A.7–A.11 and concentrate especially on the topics: a. open collector gates and wired logic b. tri-state (three state) gates c. fan-in/fan-out d. propagation delay e. noise margins 3. Look over the handout on how to implement an XOR gate with transmission gates (one p-mos and one n-mos transistor in parallel with some inverters) and look at the CMOS tri-state inverter and bu±er ampliFer so as to explain (from the logic viewpoint) how they work....
