Diodes Incorporated Introduces Octal Logic Selection to Simplify Data Bus Engineering

August 26, 2014

PLANO, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Diodes Incorporated (Nasdaq: DIOD), a leading global manufacturer and supplier of high-quality application specific standard products within the broad discrete, logic and analog semiconductor markets, today expanded its low-voltage CMOS logic family with the addition of octal devices, provided in the space-saving QFN and TSSOP 20-pin packages. Thirteen popular 8-channel logic parts have been introduced, suitable for data bus applications in a wide range of consumer electronics and data communication products.

The octal logic functions added to the Diodes 74LVC family are: buffer/line drivers, transceivers, latches and flip-flops. Supporting a wide power supply range of 1.65V to 3.6V, the new logic devices are drop-in replacements for existing industry-standard parts and support both legacy and cutting-edge, mini cell-backed product designs.

With inputs tolerant of voltages up to 5.5V (max), the octal logic devices also operate comfortably in mixed voltage environments. All devices in the product line offer system designers the flexibility of power-down isolation via integral IOFF circuitry, which disables the output in power-down mode to protect against harmful current backflow.
