Excerpt that explains how it all fits together
When you string a bunch of these transistors together, then you
get what’s called a ____________, which lets you add, subtract,
multiply, and divide binary numbers in any way imaginable.
In a physical circuit,
these logic gates have:
All logic gates require some kind of input value so that they
have numbers to compare. These figures come in the form of voltages. When
your input voltage is 0V, then it’s considered to be low, or 0. And when
you have a voltage of 5V as an input, then this is deemed to be high, or 1.
Once a logic gate has a chance to process your input, it can then
make a decision on whether to open its gate or keep it closed. This output is
entirely determined by the type of logic gate you’re using, and some will only
open if you have two high voltages as an input, whereas others will only open
if you have a low voltage but not a high voltage as an input.
