Digital systems use the binary number system. Therefore, two-state devices are used to represent the two binary digits 1 and 0 by two different voltage levels, called HIGH and LOW. If the HIGH voltage level is used to represent 1 and the LOW voltage level is used to represent 0, the system is called the positive logic system. On the other hand, if the HIGH voltage level represents 0 and the LOW voltage level represents 1, the system is called the negative logic system.
Boolean algebra is a kind of logical mathematics developed by George Boole in the late 1830s. It resembles the algebra of real numbers but the basic numeric operations of multiplication, addition, and negation are replaced by basic logical operations of conjunction, disjunction, and complement and are also called OR operation, AND operation and NOT operation respectively.
The digital system consists of two types of circuits, namely (i) Combinational circuits and (ii) Sequential circuits A combinational circuit consists of logic gates, where outputs at any instant and are determined only by the present combination of inputs without regard to previous inputs or previous state of outputs. A combinational circuit performs a specific information- processing operation assigned logically by a set of Boolean functions. Sequential circuits contain logic gates as well as memory cells. Their outputs depend on the present inputs and also on the states of memory elements.
