    Hi

    I was wondering is it possible to connect 4 outputs to one switch. For example you have 4 inverters that you need to connect to the 2 inputs of 2 or gates (4 inputs total). How would I connect the inverter to all those inputs using one switch such that when I flick the switch on it lets all the inverters release there current at the same time. Is there A device that can do this. An example schematic is bellow.

    Thanks

    You mustn't leave the OR/XOR gate inputs floating, so what voltage should those inputs have if the inverter outputs were disconnected?
    Have you considered replacing the inverters with 2-input NAND or NOR gates, as appropriate, to enable collective switching?
