logic circuit

n
(Computer Science) an electronic circuit used in computers to perform a logical operation on its two or more input signals. There are six basic circuits, the AND, NOT, NAND, OR, NOR, and exclusive OR circuits, which can be combined into more complex circuits

This technique got beyond parametric optimization, using heuristics for designing a logic circuit dedicated to control.
The spintronics elements utilized in the power control circuits and multiple function blocks(4) within the logic circuit enable high-speed power control while minimizing standby power.
Sleep transistors are switched on when the circuit is evaluating and they are switched off in standby mode to conserve the leakage power in the logic circuit. Multi-threshold-CMOS (MTCMOS) [4] technique is also an effective way to achieve considerable decline in leakage power consumption.
Morrison, a consultant and lecturer in interference control and electronics, presents an alternative to the circuit theory approach used by engineers in digital circuit board design that emphasizes energy flow rather than just signal interconnection to explain logic circuit behavior.
As I recall, a flip-flop took two 2PDT relays and a binary adder took two 4PDT relays in my brute-force logic circuit. Kids today can get started exploring computers more easily.
The first technology models noise pulse propagation and error-causing timing and simulates errors on logic circuits. The second technology combines a memory software error simulator with a circuit simulator to evaluate logic circuit software errors.
In fact, IBM recently unveiled the smallest-ever computer logic circuit made from a single carbon molecule.
They encoded the entire inverter logic function along the length of a single carbon nanotube, forming the world's first intra-molecular -- or single-molecule -- logic circuit. In the binary digital world of zeros and ones, a voltage inverter changes a '1' into a '0', and a '0' into a '1' inside computer chips.
The logic circuit diagram shows several continuous-time recurrent loops (breaking the digital design rules), so the system's behavior is unlikely to be fully captured by this Boolean level of abstraction.
