Using a NAND or NOR Gate As a NOT

About: Electrical Engineer, control systems, automation, small electronics, home automation, microcontrollers etc.

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.
