    Hey guys...

    I have a question about NOR and NAND gates...

    I basically have a truth table , in which i deduced a digital circuit using AND & OR gates...

    however, as we all know, industry standards are NOR and NAND gates...

    My question is as follows, can I create AND gates using NORs ? (OR gates from NANDs ? ) or is it better to create AND from NAND and OR from NOR ?

    I don't have inverters either :S i was planning on using the NAND as my inverters...

    here are my constraints, I have 8 NORs and 4 NANDs and I require 2 inverters, 1 OR and 2 AND....

    is it possible ?

    last questino, is there a way to use NORs to make inverters?

    Thanks guys

    Yes

    Well, it might take less gates.
    Yes

    they are all possible,but i don't understand why you design in this way

    It depends on the fan in or fan outs of the circuit. Try reading Brown Vranesics Digital Logic Design
