Digital logic gates is an electronic component which results perticular ouput after implementing its logic on the input signals. Digital logic gates are the basic building block of any digital circuits. It can have one or more than inputs and exactly one output. Inputs or outputs signals are two types of voltage – High(1) voltage and Low(0) voltage, it can also be represented as On(1) and Off(0) or True(1) and False(0). Logic gate’s inputs and output represented using Truth table. Truth table helps us to understand the behaviour of logic gates. Truth table shows all possible input combinations and resultant output on each input combinations. For example a 2-input logic gates will have four(22) input combinations – (0,0), (0,1), (1,0), (1,1). Therefore, 3-input logic gate will have eight(23) input combinations.

Basic gates:

AND gate:

AND gate is an electronic circuit where output will be 1 when all its inputs are 1 otherwise 0. A 2-input AND gate can be represented as:-

Truth Table:

Input-1 Input-2 Output
0 0 0
0 1 0
1 0 0
1 1 1

Using this Truth table we can easily perform AND operation on two binary numbers. If we want to perform AND operation on numbers with different base e.g. Octal, Decimal or Hex then, we can first convert the number to binary number and then do the AND operation. We can use online Any base converter tool to convert numbers to binary equivalent. For example, if we want to do AND on two decimal numbers 17 & 45 :-

17 (decimal) = 010001 (binary)
45 (decimal) = 101101 (binary)
-----------------------------------
        (AND)  000001 = 1 (decimal)

We can use online AND calculator tool to calculate AND on Octal, Decimal, Hex or Binary numbers.

1 0 1
1 1 1
