About

The complimentary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) logic family contains an array of integrated circuits that perform all the tasks necessary for rudimentary computation. Designed for applications that require raw electronic processing power, the speed at which these chips operate can be slowed and their binary processes repurposed for creative applications.

The workshop covered the functions of several chips from the CMOS family including the basic gates (AND, NOR, XOR, etc.), Schmitt trigger oscillators, frequency dividers, shift registers, and multiplexers, as well as techniques for connecting the inputs and outputs of these chips to generate patterns for controlling software. Participants created projects using UART (Arduino serial), MIDI, and OSC protocols.
