What is Digital Operation?

The operations performed in digital electronics are called digital operations. Some common digital operations are counting, arithmetic operations and logic operations.

The counting operation is performed by "Counters". The arithmetic operation is performed by Arithmetic and logic unit and are addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division and are accomplished with other digital circuits. The logic operations too are performed by ALU and they include inversion (NOT), AND and OR gates.

Selecting a single output of multiple inputs (Multiplexing) or giving out many outputs with single inputs (Demultiplexing) are can also be treated as digital operation. Similarly, the process of encoding and decoding are also digital operations. These operations are performed by different data processing circuits like Multiplexes, de-multiplexes, encoder, decoder etc...
