Six basic gates with Diodes and Resistors

A project log for Light Logic

Using a Led and CdS LDR to form inverting Photonic logic gates. The entire boolean logic set handled by resistors and diodes! Who'd'a thunk

I have worked out the circuits for the following gates. AND, NAND, Buffer, NOT, OR and NOR. With these I can make XOR and XNOR gates as well. These gates have good fan-in and fan-out capability.

Thank you Dave, I also lashed up a XOR with three of them last night and it worked like it should as well :-D
