  From  The  Free  On-line  Dictionary  of  Computing  (13  Mar  01)  [foldoc]: 
 
  gate 
 
    A  low-level  {digital}  logic  component.  Gates 
  perform  {Boolean}  {functions}  (e.g.  {AND},  {NOT}),  store 
  {bit}s  of  data  (e.g.  a  {flip-flop}),  and  connect  and 
  disconnect  various  parts  of  the  overall  circuit  to  control  the 
  flow  of  data  ({tri-state}  buffer). 
 
  In  a  {CPU},  the  term  applies  particularly  to  the  buffers  that 
  route  data  between  the  various  {functional  units}.  Each  gate 
  allows  data  to  flow  from  one  unit  to  another  or  enables  data 
  from  one  output  onto  a  certain  {bus}.

  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Gate 
  (1.)  Of  cities,  as  of  Jerusalem  (Jer.  37:13;  Neh.  1:3;  2:3; 
  3:3),  of  Sodom  (Gen.  19:1),  of  Gaza  (Judg.  16:3). 
 
  (2.)  Of  royal  palaces  (Neh.  2:8). 
 
  (3.)  Of  the  temple  of  Solomon  (1  Kings  6:34,  35;  2  Kings 
  18:16);  of  the  holy  place  (1  Kings  6:31,  32;  Ezek.  41:23,  24); 
  of  the  outer  courts  of  the  temple,  the  beautiful  gate  (Acts 
  3:2). 
 
  (4.)  Tombs  (Matt.  27:60). 
 
  (5.)  Prisons  (Acts  12:10;  16:27). 
 
  (6.)  Caverns  (1  Kings  19:13). 
 
  (7.)  Camps  (Ex.  32:26,  27;  Heb.  13:12). 
 
  The  materials  of  which  gates  were  made  were 
 
  (1.)  Iron  and  brass  (Ps.  107:16;  Isa.  45:2;  Acts  12:10). 
 
  (2.)  Stones  and  pearls  (Isa.  54:12;  Rev.  21:21). 
 
  (3.)  Wood  (Judg.  16:3)  probably. 
 
  At  the  gates  of  cities  courts  of  justice  were  frequently  held, 
  and  hence  "judges  of  the  gate"  are  spoken  of  (Deut.  16:18;  17:8; 
  21:19;  25:6,  7,  etc.).  At  the  gates  prophets  also  frequently 
  delivered  their  messages  (Prov.  1:21;  8:3;  Isa.  29:21;  Jer. 
  17:19,  20;  26:10).  Criminals  were  punished  without  the  gates  (1 
  Kings  21:13;  Acts  7:59).  By  the  "gates  of  righteousness"  we  are 
  probably  to  understand  those  of  the  temple  (Ps.  118:19).  "The 
  gates  of  hell"  (R.V.,  "gates  of  Hades")  Matt.  16:18,  are 
  generally  interpreted  as  meaning  the  power  of  Satan,  but 
  probably  they  may  mean  the  power  of  death,  denoting  that  the 
  Church  of  Christ  shall  never  die.
