A wide range of complex logic functions in which PTL was used, can be replaced by GDI Technique and this makes the circuit simple [4-6].
Using this approach, the logic function has been represented similarly to its representation in conventional algebra, as follows:
Summary: TEHRAN (FNA)- MIT engineers have created genetic circuits in bacterial cells that not only perform logic functions, but also remember the results, which are encoded in the cell's DNA and passed on for dozens of generations.
For each long-distance power line can be written a logic function that suits to normal regime of its operation; for example, for LPL1
One extremely valuable way of using a logic function is to employ it as a flagging operation.
One part of digital CMOS circuits that has not changed is how logic functions are computed.
They encoded the entire inverter logic function along the length of a single carbon nanotube, forming the world's first intra-molecular -- or single-molecule -- logic circuit.
Their relatively simple cell architecture allows each user logic function to be implemented using a minimum number of cells, so the logic is mapped efficiently and a very high utilization density is achieved.
