Diode Logic Gate Lab

Creating simple logic control with diodes.

Intro

In this lab we’ll..

[creating logic gates and indicating via LEDs]

Requirements

Item Approximate Cost (USD)
1N5817 Schottky Diodes  
(2) Switches  
LEDs  
Push Buttons  

Exercise 1: OR Gate

[going through two diodes, the logic/Schottky diode and the LED, so have to account for both voltage drops]

If you have iCircuit, you can begin your design in there. It will help to get the various values of your circuit components at least close to correct:

Exercise 2: Inverted AND Gate w/Buttons

Exercise 3: AND Gate w/Switches
