Logic gates and circuits
Logic gates are the building blocks of electronic circuits that are used in computer components like memory and other controlling devices. Logic gates work on the principle that the binary digit 1 represents the ON or TRUE state and 0 represents the OFF or FALSE state.
A computer understands the binary language. So, the components of the computer contain logic gates, which work on the binary system. The data and instructions are processed in binary form.
This A Level Computer Science module introduces computers to your students, explaining:
- Logic gates (NOT, AND, OR, NAND, NOR & XOR)
- To apply the concept of logic gates to analyse and build logic circuits
- To design and analyse logic circuits
