If anyone is having difficulty with English electronics jargon (or even some basic electronic concepts), I found that this page is quite helpful smiley-wink

Very interesting, it would be cool to see to see some basic logic gates made out of hydraulic "transistors".

Of course, the simplest is the OR.

A ===\====
           ]===== out
B ===\====


\ is a passive valve (working as a diode)
if A or B is under pressure OUT is under pressure

for an AND port you need active valves that open under pressure of a 3rd tube. (with a spring inside to close it again if pressure is released.
put 2 of those in series and

P ===[A]======== out
P = constant pressure (~ +5V)
if valve A opens uner pressure and valve B opens under pressure => out will have pressure

An invertor is made with a valve that closes under pressure
P ===[in]==== out

homework, design the XOR smiley-wink
