A NOT gate (also often called Inverter) is a logic gate. Each NOT gate has only one input signal. Logically with NOT gates, the input and the output swap, so if you input 1 it outputs as 0; likewise if you input 0 it outputs as 1.

Generally, actual NOT gates with a voltage below 0.5V is 0, and a voltage of 4–5V is 1.

The inverter can be made of a discrete transistor with other components, or several inverters may be packaged in an integrated circuit.
