The product introduction includes 3-input NAND and 3-input AND gates and four configurable multifunction gates providing a choice of up to 7 different logic functions each. A Schmitt trigger inverter and Schmitt trigger buffer complete the new offerings, all of which are all also being made available in industry standard SOT packaging.
The logic devices' wide operating voltage range, of 1.65V to 5.5V, means the parts will be equally well suited to traditional 5V as well as ultra-portable battery applications, with its 1µA typical current draw helping to reduce energy consumption. Powered down, the devices' output circuitry is automatically disabled to prevent damaging backflow current and to ensure signal isolation. With 5.5V tolerant inputs, the logic products can also serve as voltage translation devices.
