Logic gates

By Andrew Gregory. Posted

If you came to electronics via any route other than formal education, you might struggle a bit with some of the terms used. AND and OR look like English words, but what on earth is a XOR? And is NAND a real thing, or a typo? None of it makes sense – and as it’s electrons, they’re too small to see with our puny human eyes. Damn and blast!

But hold on: there’s no need to get into a mountain of debt pursuing a degree in electrical engineering. All you need to do is get one of these attractive, interactive logic gates for your desk. It’ll teach you the NOT, OR, AND, and XOR logic gates, looks good, and comes with all the parts needed for assembly. Learning by blinkenlights!


Install one of these at home, and learn effortlessly
