Part of the Texts and Monographs in Computer Science book series (MCS)


At the present time logic networks are mostly constructed of digital integrated circuits which in turn are composed mainly of diodes, transistors and resistors. The object of the following discussion is to study some of the most common families of digital integrated circuits. The approach taken will be to first present models for integrated diodes and transistors, and then to use the models to analyze some of the basic properties of the common circuit families. Other components used in logic networks include electromechanical devices such as relays [McCluskey, 1965] and fluid logic elements [Wagner, 1969]. These will not be discussed here but the interested reader is directed to the references.
