AND Gate

AND gate also has two or more input signals same as that of OR gate, and the output is single. The gate has a high output only when all the input signals are high otherwise the output signal is low. The logic symbol for the gate is shown below.

AND-GATE-FIG-3The switching circuit of the AND gate is shown below. A lamp is connected to a voltage source through the two switches A and B. The lamp will glow when both the switches are closed. If any one of the switches is opened, the lamp will not glow.

AND-GATE-FIG-4The truth table of the AND gate is given below.
