# Latch in logic gates?

*i need to understand the meaning of latch as applied in
logic gates [digital ectronics]*

### Why logic gates are called as logic gates not boolean gates?

Logic gates are the basic building blocks of digital circuits or systems. these digital circuits are used to implement several combinational and sequential operations. these operations include starage, timing, arithmetic, coding, communication etc. Hence, implementing the boolean algebra is not the only purpose where logic gates are used, hence, it is opt to call them as logic gates rather than boolean gates.
