## Study Notes

### Learning Objectives

- Identify common logic gate symbols, truth tables, and equivalent circuits.
- Describe applications of logic circuits in aircraft systems and schematic diagrams.
- Interpret and understand logic diagrams.
- Explain the operation and usage of latches and clocked flip-flop circuitry.

### Boolean Logic and Binary Representation

- Digital systems process information in binary form, using devices with two states such as open/closed switches.
- Each state can be arbitrarily assigned binary values: open (0) and closed (1).
- Other binary representation examples include punched holes in paper and devices like light bulbs and transistors that operate in two conditions.
- In digital electronics, binary information is represented by voltage levels, typically 0 V for binary 0 and +5 V for binary 1.
- Voltage ranges define logic levels: 0-0.8 V for logic 0 and 2-5 V for logic 1.
- The key difference between digital and analog systems is that digital states focus on whether a condition is true (1) or false (0), while analog values are significant.

### Boolean Constants and Variables

- Boolean algebra operates with two values: 0 (false) and 1 (true).
- Boolean variables can represent the state of voltage levels in circuits.
- Logic levels can be expressed with terms like LOW/HIGH, Off/On, and Open/Closed.

### Truth Tables

- Truth tables define the relationship between inputs and outputs in logic circuits, summarizing output states for all input combinations.
- The number of entries in a truth table is calculated as 2^N, where N is the number of inputs.
- Input combinations follow a binary counting sequence.

### Simple Logic Gates

- Logic gates are physical devices created to implement Boolean logic, forming logic circuits crucial for integrated circuits and microprocessors.
- Setting a latch or flip-flop occurs with a low pulse on the Set input, resulting in Q = 1.
- Clearing an S-R Latch requires pulsing Reset high, which sets Q to 0 while preserving states thereafter.

### Flip-Flop Operations

- NAND gate flip-flops trigger when Set and Reset inputs are pulsed low with S and R typically held high.
- NOR gate flip-flops are triggered with high pulses on S and R while held low.
- Invalid states in flip-flops occur during simultaneous setting or resetting, leading to both outputs being high or low, an undesired condition.

### Signal Validity

- The validity of signals in flip-flops is essential to avoid input configurations that yield undesired output states.
- Proper configurations prevent both outputs from being true or false simultaneously, maintaining the desired circuitry operation.
