While many enthusiasts out there consider the 7400 and 4000 range of ICs archaic we at MitchElectronics beg to differ! This week we have rolled out our latest range of kits; the RTL logic gates! RTL is a logic gate technology that pre-dates even the 7400 and 4000 series and is made up of resistors and transistors to perform logical functions. Interestingly, RTL technology was used in the guidance computer that enabled the Apollo moon missions as well as powering early computers in the 1960’s.
Currently there are five different gates and while each gate can be purchased individually, they are available in packs of 5 (great for combination circuits)
- NOT Gate
- NOR Gate
- OR Gate
- AND Gate
