Combination logic is the concept in which two or more input state define one or more output state. Encoder and Decoder are the combination logic circuits. In which we implement combinations logic with the help of boolean algebra.

To encode something is to convert an unambiguous piece of information into a form of code that is not so clearly understood, and the device which performs this operation is termed ad Encoder.

Difference between encoder and decoder Decoder

1. Encoder :
An Encoder is a device that converts the active data signal into a coded message format, or it is a device that converts analogue signal to digital signals. It is a combination circuit, that converts binary information in the form of a 2N input lines into N output lines which represent N bit code for the input. When an input signal is applied to an encoder, then logic circuitry involved within it converts that particular input into coded binary output.


To decode is to perform the reverse operation :converting a code back into an unambiguous form of code, and the device which perform this operation is termed as Decoder.

Difference between encoder and decoder Encoder

2. Decoder :
A decoder is also a combination circuit as encoder but its operation is exactly reverse as that of the encoder. A decoder is a device that generates the original signal as output from the coded input signal and converts n lines of input into 2n lines of output. An AND gate can be used as the basic decoding element because it produces a high output only when all inputs are high.



Difference between encoder and decoder :

1Encoder circuit basically converts the applied information signal into a coded digital bit stream.The decoder performs reverse operation and recovers the original information signal from the coded bits.
2In case of encoder, the applied signal is the active signal input.The decoder accepts coded binary data as its input.
3The number of inputs accepted by an encoder is 2n.The number of input accepted by decoder is only n inputs.
4The output lines for an encoder are n.The output lines of a decoder are 2n.
5The encoder generates coded data bits as its output.The decoder generates an active output signal in response to the coded data bits.
6The operation performed is simple.The operation performed is complex.
7The encoder circuit is installed at the transmitting end.The decoder circuit is installed at the receiving side.
8OR gate is the basic logic element used in it.AND gate along with NOT gate is the basic logic element used in it.
9It is used in E-mail, video encoders etc.It is used in Microprocessors, memory chips etc.
