I'm mainly using a 4x4 binary logic module in this video.
Here are a few pics of the setup:
The 4x4 is receiving pulses from the Great Divide & 8-bit Cipher.
The nonlinear circuit (NLC) 4x4 logic module is made up
of 4 identical circuits. Each has a different CMOS chip... which will produce related though different sequences & triggers. These kinds of modules are great for triggering drums.
Suitable ICs for use in these circuits are
4030 or 4070 XOR
A bit about Binary & Boolean Logic
Boolean logic was first conceived by George Boole (1816-1864). He was an English mathematician & philosopher.
He is now regarded as one of the founders of the digital computer and indeed of digital electronics itself.
In computer programming Boolean data uses binary code: True / False, on/off, or 0/1. His system
consisted of the three most basic operations: AND, OR, and NOT
With all the AND & OR operations there are 2 inputs and one output.
Firstly, the AND gate:
The AND gate is a basic digital logic gate.
You will only get a output if both inputs are 1 (or "high" or "on" or "yes")
If either or both inputs is 0, then the output will be zero.
A B A and B
0 0 0
0 1 0
1 0 0
1 1 1
The 4081 IC looks like this:
A four-input AND gate can be configured using the 4081
The OR Gate
The 4071 IC in surface mounted form looks like this.
Here is the pin layout:
The output of an OR gate goes "low" (0) if and only if both inputs are "low" (0).
A B A OR B
0 0 0
0 1 1
1 0 1
1 1 1
The NOT gate is also called an inverter.
It outputs the exact opposite digital signal as what is input.
It's not part of the 4x4 binary module but I'd thought I'd include it for completeness.
