|A||B||A AND B|
The AND gate is a digital logic gate that implements logical conjunction - it behaves according to the truth table to the right. A HIGH output (1) results only if both the inputs to the AND gate are HIGH (1). If neither or only one input to the AND gate is HIGH, a LOW output results.
Equation:- output(C) = i/p(A)+ i/p(B).
As well as the standard 2-Input AND Gate, 3-, 4- and 8-Input AND Gates are also available:
If no specific AND gates are available, one can be made from NAND or NOR gates, because NAND and NOR gates are considered the "universal gates, meaning that they can be used to make all the others. The configuration shown on the right shows how to use NAND gates to create the effect of an AND gate.
