  Fluid chip does binary logic TRN 100604
Logic gates convert one or two inputs into an output based on a rule.
The researchers' microfluidic logic gates convert "flow" or "not flow" inputs to outputs of "dyed" or "not dyed" liquid.
The NOT gate is the simplest logic gate because it only has one input and so all the channels can be flowing at the same rate, said Vestad.

  Logic gate - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In the NOT gate the output is the logical opposite of the input.
The NOR gate is the NOT of an OR gate.
Logic circuits are often classified in two groups: combinatorial logic, in which the outputs are continuous-time functions of the inputs, and sequential logic, in which the outputs depend on information stored by the circuits as well as on the inputs.

 logic gate - Hutchinson encyclopedia article about logic gate   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
Information is fed to a gate in the form of binary-coded input signals (logic value 0 stands for ‘off’ or ‘low-voltage pulse’, logic 1 for ‘on’ or ‘high-voltage’), and each combination of input signals yields a specific output (logic 0 or 1).
The output of a NOT or inverter gate is the opposite of the signal received through its single input, and a NOR or NAND gate produces an output signal that is the opposite of the signal that would have been produced by an OR or AND gate, respectively.
The properties of a logic gate, or of a combination of gates, may be defined and presented in the form of a diagram called a truth table, which lists the output that will be triggered by each of the possible combinations of input signals.

 CMOS Logic
CMOS logic is a newer technology, based on the use of complementary MOS transistors to perform logic functions with almost no current required.
CMOS gates are all based on the fundamental inverter circuit shown to the left.
Since the gate is essentially an open circuit it draws no current, and the output voltage will be equal to either ground or to the power supply voltage, depending on which transistor is conducting.

 What is logic gate? - a definition from Whatis.com - see also: OR, NOR, NOT, AND, XOR, NAND
A logic gate is an elementary building block of a digital circuit.
In most logic gates, the low state is approximately zero volts (0 V), while the high state is approximately five volts positive (+5 V).
The AND gate is so named because, if 0 is called "false" and 1 is called "true," the gate acts in the same way as the logical "and" operator.

 Definition of Logic Gate
Logic gates perform basic logical functions and are the are the fundamental building blocks of digital integrated circuits.
Most logic gates take an input of two binary values, and output a single value of a 1 or 0.
The maximum number of logic gates on an integrated circuit is determined by the size of the chip divided by the size of the logic gates.

 Magnets open the gate to nanoscale logic (June 2002) - News - nanotechweb.org
A nanometre-scale logic gate that works at room temperature and is made entirely from metal has been developed by UK physicists.
Logic operations - such as NOT, AND, OR and XOR - are carried out in existing electronic circuits by semiconductor devices including diodes and transistors.
The electron density of a metal, however, is higher than it is in a semiconductor, so a metallic logic gate could be made smaller than a semiconductor logic gate.

 Experiment Demonstrates Transistorless Funtional Logic Gate
A functioning logic gate -- the most basic element of digital computers -- that is based on a transistorless approach to computing called quantum-dot cellular automata (QCA) is reported by University of Notre Dame researchers in the April 9 issue of Science.
In this experiment, the logic gate consists of a cell, composed of four quantum dots connected in a ring by tunnel junctions, and two single dot electrometers.
The device was operated by applying inputs to the gates of the cell, and the logic AND and OR operations was verified by using the electrometer outputs.

 Tesla's Invention of the Electronic Logic Gate | Tesla FAQ No. 24 | Interesting Facts About Nikola Tesla
It is a little known fact that Nikola Tesla is the acknowledged inventor of the electronic AND logic gate circuit, a critical element of every digital computer.
In New York City in the mid 1890s Tesla's work was focused on the development of an independent remotely-controlled device—the "telautomaton." These efforts led him to devise methods for selectively activating any of several wireless receivers (he called this "the art of individualization") that involved multiple transmissions on separate frequencies.
After World War II when computer hardware manufacturers attempted to patent digital logic gates in general, the U.S. Patent Office asserted Tesla's turn-of-the-century priority in their electrical implementation.

 Logic Gate - Dictionary Definition and Meaning of Logic Gate
Different gates implement different Boolean functions: AND, OR, NAND, NOR (these may take two or more inputs) NOT (one input), XOR (two inputs).
NOT, NAND and NOR are often constructed from single transistors and the other gates made from combinations of these basic ones.
Gates with state, such as latches and flip-flops, are constructed by feeding some of their outputs back to their inputs.

 PhysicsWeb - Quantum logic gate lights up
Classical computers deal with binary logic and the bits being processed must be either "0" or "1".
In particular they showed that the quantum-dot system behaves like a controlled-NOT gate in which the value of one qubit is reversed (the NOT operation) if - and only if - the value of the other qubit is 1.
Although it will not be possible to scale up the system, the group says that many of the ideas and techniques they have developed could be useful in other approaches to quantum computing based on the optical control of electron-spin qubits in quantum dots.

There are three, five or seven simple gates that you need to learn about, depending on how you want to count them (you will see why in a moment).
The final two gates that are sometimes added to the list are the XOR and XNOR gates, also known as "exclusive or" and "exclusive nor" gates, respectively.
Since there is a well-understood symbol for XOR gates, it is generally easier to think of XOR as a "standard gate" and use it in the same way as AND and OR in circuit diagrams.
