These octal buffers and line drivers are designed specifically to
improve both the performance and density of 3-state memory address
drivers, clock drivers, and bus-oriented receivers and transmitters.
Taken together with the ´BCT240 and ´BCT241, these devices
provide the choice of selected combinations of inverting and
noninverting outputs, symmetrical (active-low output-enable) inputs, and complementary OE
The ´BCT244 is organized as two 4-bit buffers/line drivers
with separate output-enable () inputs. When is
low, the device passes data from the A inputs to the Y outputs. When
is high, the
outputs are in the high-impedance state.
The SN54BCT244 is characterized for operation over the full
military temperature range of -55°C to 125°C. The
SN74BCT244 is characterized for operation from 0°C to 70°C.
