Abstract

The Exclusive Or network supplies an output when any one, but only one, of the inputs A... N is present. The Vb is set so that the transistor is cut off when no inputs A... N are present. The output level at this time at terminal 1 is zero.

Exclusive Or Network

The Exclusive Or network supplies an output when any one, but only one, of the inputs A... N is present. The Vb is set so that the transistor is cut off when no inputs A... N are present. The output level at this time at terminal 1 is zero.

When one of the inputs A... N is supplied, the transistor moves into the active region. An AC signal from source 2 is allowed to go through. Under control of diode 3, a rectified DC output is available at terminal 1. When more than one input A... N is present, the transistor is in saturation and a zero level is again seen at terminal 1.
