In electronics a three-state or 3-state digital logic gate is one in which the output circuit can be completely switched off, putting the output in a high-impedance state. The output asserts neither a logic 1 nor logic 0 voltage level and aside from stray capacitance and leakage currents puts no load on the circuits connected to the output. A common synonym is tristate logic, which is a registered trademark of National Semiconductor. Such output circuits are commonly used when many devices must share a common bus, such as for memory or input/output circuit boards. Two digital voltmeters The field of electronics is the study and use of systems that operate by controlling the flow of electrons or other electrically charged particles in devices such as thermionic valves and semiconductors. ... A logic gate is an arrangement of controlled switches used to calculate operations using Boolean logic in digital circuits. ...
