discrete logic

A chip that contains one logic gate or a small number of logic gates. Although thousands of gates are routinely placed on a single chip, discrete logic chips with only one or two gates are also manufactured. These chips are used as "glue chips" between ASICs and other ICs typically to reshape and transfer signals. See logic gate and glue logic.
