## 2-Input Exclusive-OR Gates

**Quad 2-input Exclusive-OR gate**

An Exclusive-OR [XOR] has a single output that goes high [logic 1] only when the inputs are different. When the inputs are the same the output goes low, see the true table below.

**Quad Dual Input Exclusive OR Gate**

The graphic above shows the logic symbol and pin out for a 7486 Exclusive-OR gate in a 14 pin package.

**Exclusive OR Gate Internal Schematic**

Note that the internal schematic of a 7486 only applies to the DIP package, as other packages may have a different internal structure [because of assurance levels, not because of the physical package change]. More importantly any of the sub-TTL families will certainly use different resistor values. For example a 74S86 XOR gate may use smaller resistor values than a 74LS86 XOR gate. The smaller resistor values allow the transistors to switch faster but also allow a higher current to flow. So a 74LS86 is slower and consumes less power than a 74S86 IC.
