These latches are ideally suited for use as temporary storage for binary
information between processing units and input/output or indicator units.
Information present at a data (D) input is transferred to the Q output when
the enable (C) is high and the Q output will follow the data input as long
as the enable remains high. When the enable goes low, the information (that
was present at the data input at the time the transition occurred) is retained
at the Q output until the enable is permitted to go high.
The '75 and 'LS75 feature complementary Q and Q\ outputs from
a 4-bit latch, and are available in various 16-pin packages. For higher component
density applications, the '77 and 'LS77 4-bit latches are available in 14-pin
These circuits are completely compatible with all popular TTL families.
All inputs are diode-clamped to minimize transmission-line effects and simplify
system design. Series 54 and 54LS devices are characterized for operation
over the full military temperature range of -55°C to 125°C; Series
74, and 74LS devices are characterized for operation from 0°C to 70°C.
