How to make XOR gate using 2x1 multiplexer?
Hi
Is it possible to make XOR gate using 2x1 multiplexer?
if yes how? if no why?

2x1 mux using nand gates
Let me take a shot.
Below is the truth table of a 2x1 multiplexer.
A B S  O
======
0 0 0  0
0 0 1  0
0 1 0  0
0 1 1  1
1 0 0  1
1 0 1  0
1 1 0  1
1 1 1  1
I can't seem to find any combination of 2inputs and one fixedinput giving an XOR gate.

realize nand gate as xor gate
Well if you have more than 1 2x1 Multiplexer it can be done. If you have 2 2x1 Multiplexers you can make a NAND gate. And then by 4 Nand Gates you can make a XOR Gate.
2x1 to AND:
Tie A to 0, then the Mux is a AND Gate with Inputs B and S. Make an Inverter of the 2nd Mux by tying A, B to say 1, 0. And cascade the 2, you have a NAND. Use 4 such NANDs to get a XOR. Thus to make a XOR by this way u need 8 2x1 MUX !
Hope this helped !!

xor gate from 2 to 1 mux truth table
You can build any logic using 2x1 MUX. The only reason why we don't use that it will be not optimal design.

build a +nand gate using a +multiplexer
Here it goes...
Code:++ b 0   > Y = a xor b b_bar 1 S  +++  a+

xor by nand gate
With single 2*1 mux u may not get X0r gate..........but by using more than 1 mux and by using additional gates u can realize xor gate ..

xor gate with two mux
Hi..
Yes It is Possible to make Xor gate using single 2:1 Mux.
Here is the way
Lets say inputs of xor gate are A and B and output=y
connect select line to A
Connect 0 > B
and 1 > B_bar

xor gate from two mux
Hi,
You can design any logic using mux in two ways,using Levevls and/or using interconnection between differernt nodes.
For XOR implementation..interconnection without using Levels

Refer www.asicworld.com for many VLSI stuff, it is a nice website by Deepak Kumar Tala ..Thanks Deepak
