Derived Logic Gates

Derived gate

#NAND gate
It is the combination of AND and NOT gates which produces low output when all inputs are high, otherwise the output will be high. It is the integration of NOT gate and AND gate that means NOT+ AND = NAND.

#NOR gate
It is the combination of OR and NOT gates which produces high output when all inputs are low, otherwise the output will be low. It is the integration of NOT gate and OR gate that means NOT+ OR = NOR.

# Exclusive OR(X-OR) gate
The XNOR gate produces high (1) output when all the inputs are either low (0) or high (1). So, it is an even parity generator. XOR can be written as: F = A’.B + A.B’

# Exclusive NOR(X-NOR) gate
The XNOR gate produces high (1) output when all the inputs are either low (0) or high (1). So, it is a odd parity. XNOR can be written as: F = A.B + A’.B’
