HALF ADDER - An adder is a digital logic circuit in electronics that implements the addition of numbers. In many computers and other types of processors, adders are used to calculate addresses, similar operations and table indices in the ALU and also in other parts of the processors. These can be built for many numerical representations like excess-3 or binary coded decimal. Adders are classified into two types: half adder and full adder. The half adder circuit has two inputs: A and B, which add two input digits and generate a carry and sum.
An adder is a digital circuit that performs addition of numbers. The half adder adds two binary digits called as augend and addend and produces two outputs as sum and carry; XOR is applied to both inputs to produce sum and AND gate is applied to both inputs to produce carry.
By using half adder, you can design simple addition with the help of logic gates. A half adder is used to add two single-digit binary numbers and results into a two-digit output. It is named as such because putting two half adders together with the use of an OR gate results in a full adder. In other words, it only does half the work of a full adder.
NAND gate - It is a digital circuit that has two or more inputs and produces an output, which is the inversion of logical AND of all those inputs.
Logic NAND Gates are available using digital circuits to produce the desired logical function and is given a symbol whose shape is that of a standard AND gate with a circle, sometimes called an "inversion bubble" at its output to represent the NOT gate symbol with the logical operation of the NAND gate.
As with the AND function seen previously, the NAND function can also have any number of individual inputs and commercial available NAND Gate IC's are available in standard 2, 3, or 4 input types. If additional inputs are required, then the standard NAND gates can be cascaded together to provide more inputs.
Boolean Expression Y = (A.B)'
"If either A or B are NOT true, then Y is true"
NAND gate operation is same as that of AND gate followed by an inverter. That's why the NAND gate symbol is represented like that.
