combinational logic

Also known as "combinatorial logic," it refers to a digital logic function made of primitive logic gates (AND, OR, NOT, etc.) in which all outputs of the function are directly related to the current combination of values on its inputs. Any changes to the signals being applied to the inputs will immediately propagate through the gates until their effects appear at the outputs. Contrast with sequential logic.

Typical applications for Nexar's initial release include 8-and 16-bit embedded systems for industrial controls, automotive and "white goods," and processor-based applications that currently use FPGAs to implement large blocks of combinatorial logic. Future releases will cover more types of designs, including digital systems using off-the-shelf devices.
