Introduction: Using a NAND or NOR Gate As a NOT

Picture of Using a NAND or NOR Gate As a NOT

Simple trick to using a NAND or NOR gate to create an Inverter or NOT gate.

If you tie one input into both inputs of the NAND or NOR gate, it will create the equivalent of a NOT gate.

This can be useful when you are already using a larger IC NAND or NOR chip and you need to throw an inverter in there.
