Abstract

The circuit shown in Fig. 1 is a 'NOR' gate with dot 'AND' wiring capability, i.e., ---OI'A'--. In Fig. 2, the same circuit has been modified by the addition of a switchable current source and clamping diodes. The 'OI dot AND' function makes the circuit in Fig. 2 more useful in many applications.
