ABSTRACT- The circuit consists of three NOT gates and
an AND gate. The circuit requires four inputs. Three of
these four will be inverted. The modified inputs will be
relayed into an AND gate. The end result of the
configured circuit is a single output coming out from the
logic gate.

I. INTRODUCTION

The project consists of an AND gate which has four inputs.
Three of these inputs were inverter (NOT gate). The Figure I
digital Logic NOT Gate is the most basic of all the logical
gates and is sometimes referred to as an Inverting Buffer or The whole diagram consists of three NOT gates
simply a Digital Inverter. A Logic AND Gate is a type of and an AND gate. Inputs A, B, and C will pass through a
digital logic gate that has an output which is normally at logic NOT gate, also called inverter, while the input D will not.
They will then go through the 4-input AND gate and
level “0” and only goes “HIGH” to a logic level “1”
would produce a single output.
when ALL of its inputs are at logic level “1”. There are mainly
two applications of AND gate as Enable gate and Inhibit gate.
Enable gate means allowance of data through a channel while
inhibit gate is just the reverse of that process, i.e. disallowance
of data through a channel. NOT gates are also known as
inverter because they invert the output given to them and show
the reverse result. The objective of this project is to learn and
to understand the principle of the transistor.

II. CIRCUIT DESIGN AND DISCUSSION

The schematic diagram for the 4-input AND gate is
shown in Figure I. Figure II

Shown in Figure II is the input A connected to one of
the NOT gates. The gate sends 1 as output, if it receives 0
as input. Alternatively, if it receives 1 as input, it sends 0
as output. The same is true with inputs B and C. The
inverter consists of one of each the NMOS and PMOS
transistors. The PMOS transistor is connected to the

the output will be 0. which other ends are connected consequently to the ground. The input goes in the junction of the gates of both schematic for simulation. Therefore. using the 3-input AND gate. which is shown in Figure IV. it is done by connecting an NMOS transistor to the ground and the PMOS transistor to the source. 1 1 1 0 0 1 1 1 1 0 As we can see.

The 1 0 0 0 0 four NMOS transistors are all connected in series to the 1 0 0 1 0 supply Vdd.

According to the AND gate that has 2 inputs the circuit will be short if and only if the inputs are all open(1) but since the first 3 inputs are all 0. the inputs are all short(1) that resulted to a short(1) circuit also. On the other side. The AND gate truth table will also be considered but since the circuit has NOT gates the output will be inversed.supply Vdd. RESULTS AND ANALYSIS The circuit is an AND gate that contains four(4) inputs: three(3) NOT/inverters and one(1) AND gate. Figure III III. This means that if 0 1 1 1 0 either or all of its inputs are 0. the result is short(1) but they are all inverter that’s why the result is inverted. Secondly. we tested sets of inputs and noted the corresponding output. This will result invert the Figure IV initial input. By the use of a LED as an indicator. The other end of the series is then connected 1 0 1 0 0 to the parallel connection of four PMOS transistors. the only output that has resulted to short circuit(1) is the inputs having (0. 1). 0. The first three (3) inputs are inverters wherein they are also considered as NAND gates because the result outputs are the inversed of the outputs of the AND gate. The first is an inverter. Each gate was manually created using transistors. the AND logic gate is composed off four NMOS transistors in series connected to the source. while the NMOS transistor is connected to the The schematic diagram is then translated to a ground.
