digital electronics

(electronics)
The implementation of two-valued logic using electronic logic gates such as and gates, or gates and flip-flops. In such circuits the logical values true and false are represented by two different voltages, e.g. 0V for false and +5V for true. Similarly, numbers are normally represented in binary using two different voltages to represented zero and one.

Digital electronics contrasts with analogue electronics which represents continuously varying quantities like sound pressure using continuously varying voltages.

Digital electronics is the foundation of modern computers and digital communications. Massively complex digital logic circuits with millions of gates can now be built onto a single integrated circuit such as a microprocessor and these circuits can perform millions of operations per second.

digital electronics

The field of computers and other computer-controlled devices. Although they may have analog inputs and outputs, almost all electronic devices are controlled by digital circuits. See digital circuit.
