NAND gate becomes AND gate when used with negative logic. 
NAND gate turth table(with -ve logic) 
0 0 0 
0 1 0 
1 0 0 
1 1 1 -> this is truth table of AND gate

When used with negative logic means that the inputs are inverted.

If the inputs of a nand gate are inverted and given, the output will be an OR of the inputs. De morgans law (A'.B')' = A + B

OR gate is the right answer

ANS is nor gate

negative logic means a high is interpreted as low and vice-versa

poornima is right

it is so simple it becomes an AND gate when we use negative logic becuase NAND means that Negaive AND

The NAND gate becomes a "OR" gate because
(a'.b')' = ((a+b)')' = a+b (by De-Morgan's)

it is NOR ofcourse

it is NOR gate. Lets analyse how.

In positive logic 0s are considered low and 1s as high voltages. In negative logic 0s are high and 1s are low. Now the truth table for Nand is

A B Y         A(V) B(V) Y(V)-> positive logic

0 0 1         low    low   high

0 1 1         low   high   high

1 0 1         high   low   high

1 1 0         high   high  low

Now when used as negative logic then the truth table will be


1 1 0

1 0 0

0 1 0

0 0 1

hence it is NOR gate.

hi , it will become AND gate at there.

First of all, a NAND gate is not (a'.b'), it is (a.b)' -- that is, (a'+b'). When you negate this, you get (a'+b')' which you can then de-morgan to get (a.b). So a NAND gate become AND

it becomes 'OR' gate..so simple apply Demorgan's laws..u will get 'OR'.


  • Aug 17th, 2008

Yes i think it becomes nor gate because using a negative logic doesn't mean doing any mathematically. it means just suposing zero to be one and viceversa
