I didn't!My uncle gave me an old SLR film camera that he didn't need, Because he knows that I love taking electronic devices apart, I was really happy because I'd never taken apart a SLR camera! A couple minutes later, My 5 year old cous...

In the next steps, we will get into boolean algebra and we will derive the NAND-based configurations for the desired gates.NAND and NOR gates are "universal" gates, and thus any boolean function can be construc...
