digital logic A methodology for dealing with expressions and state tables containing discrete (usually two-state) variables: in this sense the term is synonymous with Boolean algebra (see also multivalued logic). The term is also applied to the hardware – components and circuits – in which such expressions and tables are implemented. See also digital design, logic circuit, combinational circuit, sequential circuit, q-ary logic.
