## Study Notes

### Binary Information Representation

- Binary information in digital systems is expressed through voltage levels, typically using two nominal values: 0 V for binary 0 and +5 V for binary 1.
- Due to circuit variations, binary values are represented as ranges: 0 to 0.8 V for binary 0 and 2 to 5 V for binary 1.
- Signals mostly remain within these ranges, except during transitions.

### Digital vs. Analogue Systems

- In digital systems, the exact voltage is not critical; for instance, a voltage of 3.6 V is equivalent to 4.3 V.
- In contrast, analogue systems require precise voltage values, as they represent specific information (e.g., temperature from a transducer).
- Analogue circuit design is often more complex due to sensitivities to component variations, temperature, and noise.

### Truth Tables

- Truth tables map input combinations to output states, crucial for understanding logic circuits.
- The number of input combinations in a truth table is determined by the formula 2^N, where N is the number of inputs.
- Combinations follow the binary counting sequence for easy reference.

### Logic Gates

- Logic gates are fundamental components that execute Boolean logic through specific combinations.
- Basic gates include OR, AND, and NOT, serving as building blocks for more complex logic circuits.

### OR Gate Operation

- The OR operation yields a result of 1 for any combination where one or more inputs are 1; it outputs 0 only when both inputs are 0.
- The Boolean expression for the OR function is X = A + B, which signifies a logical operation, not mathematical addition.
- For multiple inputs, the expression expands to X = A + B + C, retaining the rule where the result cannot exceed 1.

### Logic Waveforms

- Logic circuits can yield various output waveforms when given specific input levels.
- Logic level 1 (HIGH) is typically represented by +5 V, while logic level 0 (LOW) corresponds to 0 V.

### Flip-Flops and Latches

- Flip-flops store binary data and can be configured to change states based on input conditions.
- When inputs S and R are connected with S being low (0) and R high (1), output states Q and Q' will flip: Q becomes 1, and Q' becomes 0.
- The operation within a flip-flop involves a sequence of logic gate responses that maintain the inverse relationship between Q and Q'.

### Application in Circuits

- Many aircraft circuits can be represented schematically using logic circuits, facilitating design and analysis.
- Integrated circuits are complex assemblies of simpler logic gates for specific functions.
