Logic gates as switching circuits in electronic systems

Security lamps, alarm systems, and washing machines can make some simple decisions.
The switching on and off operations are controlled by electronic switches made up of logic
gates.
Logic gates work using tiny transistors as switches. They are manufactured as integrated
circuit (IC), with each chip holding several gates.
A logic gate is a circuit that has one or more input signals but only one output signal.

For each gate, the input or inputs are on the left of the symbol. The output is on the right
Each input and output can be either high (logic 1) or low (logic 0).
A binary 0 represents 0 V, and a binary 1 represents a non zero voltage.
A truth table lists all input possibilities and the corresponding output for each input.
List, draw symbols and state the action of the logic gates

Truth table

Action
For the input to be ON,
both inputs must be ON.
Output in ON only when
both inputs A and B are
ON.
For the output to be ON at
least one of the inputs
must be ON.
Output Q is ON when input
A or B or both is ON

## The output is ON when the

input is OFF, and vice
versa

4.

NAND gate
It is equivalent to an AND
gate with its output
inverted by a NOT gate.
Output Q is OFF when
inputs A and B are both
ON

5.

NOR gate
It is equivalent to an OR
gate with its output
inverted by a NOT gate.
Output Q is ON when both
input A and input B are
OFF

Built truth tables for logic gates in combination for a maximum of 2 inputs

## Describe applications of logic gate control systems.

1. There are smoke sensors and temperature
detectors in hotels. If there is no smoke or
high temperature in a room, the alarm will not
trigger. But if one of the inputs is HIGH or
both the smoke and the temperature sensors
are HIGH, then the alarm will trigger.
Complete the truth table

## 2. Diagram 2 shows a simple

electronic control system that is
used as an automatic and
manual switches to switch on
the street lights when it is dark.
The control system allows the
street lights either to switch on
manually by a switch at any time,
or automatically by a light
sensor when it is dark.
Light sensor:
daytime
=1
Dark /night = 0

## 3. A student would like to construct a

logic gate circuit to switch on an air
conditioner in his home automatically.
He has chosen a light sensitive
device to detect daytime and night
and a heat sensitive device to detect
the surrounding temperature. He has
constructed a truth table to show the
function of the logic gate circuit to
switch on the air conditioner.
Draw the logic gate circuit that will
switch on the air conditioner based on
the function stated in the truth table
4. You are given two sensors and a
switch.
(a) temperature sensor A is hot =
ON (1) cool = OFF (0)
(b) Light sensor B is
sunlight =
ON night = OFF
