Diodes Incorporated has released its first family of single-gate logic products. Built on an advanced 5 V CMOS process and offering performance enhancements over existing alternatives, the 74LVC1Gxx series provides users with eight popular standard logic functions in SOT25 and SOT353 package options, and the 74LVCE1Gxx series offers enhanced performance versions of these same functions. Suitable for use in a variety of communication, computing, consumer and networking equipment, the initial offering covers AND, NAND, OR, NOR, XOR, inversion and buffering functions. The single-gate products are replacements for industry standard parts in point-of-application general purpose logic, level shifting and signal isolation applications. At 1.65 V to 5.5 V, the operating voltage range of the 74LVC1Gxx Series is wide, enabling it to support both portable battery operated and traditional 5V applications. To address higher performance application requirements, the 74LVCE1Gxx extended specification products operate down to 1.4 V, and provide a 30 percent enhancement in switching speeds at 1.8 V as compared to the standard LVC family. Both families have 5.5 V tolerant inputs, enabling the creation of voltage translation solutions.
