Derived Logical Functions and Gates While the three basic functions AND, OR, and NOT are sufficient to accomplish all possible logical functions and operations, some combinations are used so commonly that they have been given names and logic symbols of their own. We will discuss three of these on this page. The first is called NAND, and consists of an AND function followed by a NOT function. The second, as you might expect, is called NOR. This is an OR function followed by NOT. The third is a variation of the OR function, called the Exclusive-OR, or XOR function. As with the three basic logic functions, each of these derived functions has a specific logic symbol and behavior, which we can summarize as follows: The NAND Gate The NAND gate implements the NAND function, which is exactly inverted from the AND function you already examined. With the gate shown to the left, both inputs must have logic 1 signals applied to them in order for the output to be a logic 0. With either input at logic 0, the output will be
