I have been reading the bool 'The Elements of Computing Systems' and I have designed a circuit for the computer that will use 1232 NAND gates, which assuming that there are 4 on a chip, is 308 chips. I believe that this number of gates, whilst still a large amount, is in the realm of possibility.
The issue if that I do not have much knowledge in the electronics, I am more into the computer science side of it, and i know that these logic gates are, unfortunately, not perfect. What should I look out for on the datasheets of these gates for my uses?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
