### Maximum resistor values for transistor inverter (NOT gate)

I have my circuit configured this way because I'll be hooking up my 8051 microcontroller GPIO pin to the point where three resistors (R2, R3, and R4) intersect, and the microcontroller only outputs my ...

### 1 TTL IC -> inverter + 2-input NAND + 3-input NAND

I came across this question in my homework: Implement the following gates using only one TTL IC: one inverter, one 2-input NAND and one 3-input NAND. The type of IC they're talking about has 14 ...

### How does a digital logic NOT (inverter) gate work?

I've read several so-called explanations on the web of how a NOT gate works, but they all explain WHAT it does, not HOW it actually works. I know what it does. Consider this schematic of a NOT gate: ...

### An inverter gate reduces the peak-to-peak of the signal!

Using a HCF4049 to invert a signal, I simply fed the input to one of its not-gates and got its output. Here is the result: The highlighted red lines is the output of the not-gate. (Yep! my analogue ...

### Analog NOT gate [closed]

I am pretty new to electronics and was wondering how you could get a NOT gate for a 9v battery. I understand that it can not make power at the output when there is no power input, so it would probably ...

### amplifying out signal of germanium diode

Hello Dear All. Please see the attached pic. As you see i have used a germanium Diode and am going to drive to a logic gate (74hc14N). But the forward voltage of diode is 0.3v, whereas the 74hc14N ...

### Why does 10k ohm pull down resistor not work for pushbutton with NOT logic gate?

I made the following circuit on a breadboard using a 10k resistor, 100 ohm resistor, LED, and 74LS04 NOT gate. I expected this to work since the input of the NOT gate is at 0 volts when the switch ...

### What is the truth table for a logic NOT gate with two inversion bubbles?

I am currently reversw engineering a PCB and it contains a D-type register chip. The chips internal circuit diagram shows a NOT gate with two bubbles on it both in the front and the back. My question ...

### Why are rise and fall times of a wave going through series inverters not dependent on first inverter?

I've been intrigued lately by the observation that if enough inverters are placed in series the rise and fall times of output waves become invariant to the delays of the input inverter. The chain gets ...

### Avalanche diode random source design

I've seen lots of examples of avalanche diode (or other reverse PN junctions) white noise sources, and before I go out and build it, I've got some questions about the design. First, my first cut at it:...

### Using CMOS Schmitt trigger inverters in quartz crystal oscillator circuit

In all sources I've seen about quartz crystal oscillators using CMOS inverters there's a note like this: But why Schmitt inverter is needed? Won't classic 74HC04 work?

### Need help with NOT Gate oscillator circuit

Sorry, if the question seems silly, but I really need someone to help me understand the below oscillator circuit. How can the oscillation begin, if there are no initial conditions? All analysis shown ...

### LED in NOT gate confusion: LED voltage drop vs transistor voltage drop

I saw a schematic for building a NOT gate, it worked, but there's something I don't understand. Here is a pic of what I did (sorry about my finger hiding the push button) If I push the button, the ...

### A NOT gate with gradual changes between state

I have a simple NOT gate circuit with the following arrangement. LED D1 will light up by default. If I push SW1, the transistor Q1 will activates and D1 will be turned off. This NOT behaviour works ...

### Explaining the need for two transistors in Not Gate

I was reading: http://www.cs.bu.edu/~best/courses/modules/Transistors2Gates/ To teach myself transistor logic, but I have some questions on what I believe are unnecessary strucutres (most likely ...

### How does a NOT gate generate power? [duplicate]

I know that a NOT gate always inverts its input. When the input is "ON" I can imagine the gate stopping the flow of current. But how does the gate generates flow of current when the input is OFF? ...

### How Does This NOT Gate Work?

I think this question may have already been answered, in a way... But I am not satisfied. I'm reading this book about creating a NOT gate and it mentions that electricity flow from the collector to ...
