Digital Logic Circuits
Yes You Can
You can build your own logic circuits. You can buy chips with 4 or more NAND or NOR gates on them and wire them up. You can experiment on a
'bread board' like the one I demonstrated, or you can solder then to boards for more permanent productions. You need to supply about 5 volts for
most chips. The output side of the chips to not supply much power so you need to learn to amplify this with a transistor (a small npn type is usually all that is required).
Remember when you do the simulations that they correspons to real chips and circuits that you could build.
