USING XOR GATES


Teacher's Name

Student's Name

Student No.

PURPOSE:

To investigate the operation of a XOR gate

Materials

One SK-50 breadboarding socket
One 7486 TTL integrated circuit
One 470 OHM resistor
One LED
Seven Wires
One 9V Battery


Curcuit


PROCEDURE:

  1. Assemble the circuit on the breadboard. (Note pins 1 and 2 are at 5 volts when they are not connected)
  2. Observe the LED for steps (3) to (6)
  3. Connect input A and B to be both high
  4. Connect A as high and B as low
  5. Connect A as low and B as high
  6. Connect both A and B as low

OBSERVATIONS

Input A Input B Output
High High
High Low
Low High
Low Low


DISCUSSION

  1. Describe the input states required to obtain an output at 5 volts
  2. Describe the input states required to obtain an output at 0 volts
  3. What binary operation(+, -, x, ) could this integrated circuit be used for?

CONCLUSION

Summarize how the output of a XOR gate responds to its inputs.
