high

高电平;[高位]
One of two distinct states in the digital logic elements. The two states are called true and false, high and low, on and off, or “1” and “0”. In computers they are represented by two different voltage levels. The more positive level (or less negative) than the other is called the high level, the other is called the low level. If the true (“1”) level is the most positiv e voltage, this logic is referred to as positive true or positive logic.
数字逻辑元素中两个不同状态之一,这两个状态称为真和假、高和低、开和关或者“1” 和“0”。在计算机中用两个不同的电平表示它们,较高的正电压(或较低的负电压)称为 高电平,另一个称为低电平。如果真(“1”)电平是高的正电压,则此逻辑称为正 逻辑。
