Fan-Out Resistance

  1. Apr 21, 2010 #1
    Hi, pretty basic question, I'm looking through some notes and it says:

    What does the 10k load resistor refer to? Is it the resistance of one gate? Or the combined resistance of multiple gates? Just wanted to clarify.

    Yeah, I think they are just saying each gate's input "resistance" is 10kOhms, so as you parallel up N of them, you end up with 10kOhm/N.
