These devices contain four independent 2-input Exclusive-OR gates. They
perform the Boolean functions
in positive logic.
A common application is as a true/complement element. If one of the inputs
is low, the other input will be reproduced in true form at the output. If
one of the inputs is high, the signal on the other input will be reproduced
inverted at the output.
The SN5486, 54LS86A, and the SN54S86 are characterized for operation over
the full military temperature range of -55°C to 125°C. The SN7486,
SN74LS86A, and the SN74S86 are characterized for operation from 0°C to
