This octal bus transceiver is designed for asynchronous two-way communication between
data buses. The control-function implementation minimizes external timing requirements.
The SN74LV245AT allows data transmission from the A bus to the B bus or from the B bus to
the A bus, depending on the logic level at the direction-control (DIR) input. The output-enable
(OE) input can be used to disable the device so that the buses are
To ensure the high-impedance state during power up or power down,
OE should be tied to VCC through a pullup resistor;
the minimum value of the resistor is determined by the current-sinking capability of the
This device is fully specified for partial-power-down applications using
Ioff. The Ioff circuitry disables the outputs,
preventing damaging current backflow through the device when it is powered down.
