NOR Gate

NOR Gate is combination of OR Gate whose output is followed by a NOT Gate. Below is the picture of our experiment conducted.

In this project OR gate is constructed using two Diodes. Input level for each diode is fed by two individual switches.
NOR Gate Project
Here NOT Gate circuit is made using a NPN transistor such that when there is no current flow(+ve voltage) to Base then NPN transistor will not conduct and in that case we will get some positive voltage from resistance R1. But as soon as current flows through Base of Transistor it becomes conductor and it drops voltage received by Resistance R1 since current flows from collector to emitter in NPN transistor(common emitter circuit) and output becomes zero.Output of OR gate is fed to NOT gate through a resistance R2 (10K Ohms )and output of NOT gate is fed to a LED for logic level indication.
