Learners read how the NOR gate can be configured to obtain the other common logic gates. Schematics and Boolean expressions demonstrate how the AND, OR, and Hex Inverter functions are achieved through the use of only NOR gates
Learners follow the steps for reducing all of the elements of a complex circuit to a single current source and a single source resistance to create a simple circuit. Several examples are given for dc circuits. The conversion between Thevenin and Norton is also presented.
In this animated object, learners examine the signals produced at the N.O. (normally open) and N.C. (normally closed) outputs of sourcing and sinking four-wire sensors. A brief quiz completes the activity.
