74LS00 Quad 2-Input NAND Gate


The 74LS series of integrated circuits (ICs) was one of the most popular logic families of transistor-transistor logic (TTL) logic chips. 74LS series is a bipolar, low-power Schottky IC. The 74LS00 is Quad 2-Input NAND Gate IC that contains four independent, 2-input NAND gates. 74LS00 perform the Boolean functions (AND Function) Y = A .B or (OR Function)Y = A + B in positive logic.
