OR circuit, OR gate(noun)
a gate circuit in a computer that fires when any of its inputs fire
The OR gate is a digital logic gate that implements logical disjunction - it behaves according to the truth table to the right. A HIGH output results if one or both the inputs to the gate are HIGH. If neither input is HIGH, a LOW output results. In another sense, the function of OR effectively finds the maximum between two binary digits, just as the complementary AND function finds the minimum.
