**AND Output**: Buffered output of the AND logic gate. The state is indicated by the red led below it (when on the result is logic

HIGH or binary ‘1’).

**3**

**OR Output**: Bufferd output of the OR logic gate. The state is indicated by the yellow led above it.

**4**

**XOR Output**: Bufferd output of the XOR logic gate. The state is indicated by the green led below it.

**5**

**NOT Input**: This is a seperate input (not connected to the X and Y inputs) for the logic inverter. By default the

input is low (logic ‘0’) when nothing is patched in so the output is high (logic ‘1’).

**6**

**NOT Output**: Logice inverter output. When nothing is plugged in to the input you can use this output as a

positive voltage source since it would have a constant logic high.

*NOTE: Only the top set of inputs and outputs are described since the bottom set are exactly identical*

The Spock module comprises two sets of CMOS based dual input logic gates with te following functions: AND, OR, XOR and NOT. The top and bottom half of

the module are identical but can be combined together with patch cables to realise more complex logic functions.

This module is ideally used with clocks, triggers and other source of square pulses. Interesting results are also achieved by feeding audiorate signals into the gate

inputs and creating complex pulse based waveforms.

Boolean logic table for the gates. A logic 1 represents an input signal of a positive square pulse (anything

greater than 2v but ideally 5-8V) . A logic ‘0’ is a signal of 0 volts / ground.
