# Logic-gate meaning

A mechanical, optical, or electronic system that performs a logical operation on an input signal.

noun

A device, usually an electrical circuit, that performs one or more logical operations on one or more input signals. Logic gates are the building blocks of digital technology.

A collection of transistors and resistors that implement Boolean logic operations in a circuit. Transistors make up logic gates. Logic gates make up circuits. Circuits make up electronic systems. The truth tables and symbols follow. See Boolean logic.

A physical device, typically electronic, which computes a Boolean logical output (0 or 1) from Boolean input or inputs according to the rules of some logical operator.

There are six non-trivial, symmetric, two-input, Boolean logic gates: AND, OR, XOR, NAND, NOR and XNOR.
