This bus buffer is designed specifically for low-voltage (3.3-V) VCC operation, but with the capability to provide
a TTL interface to a 5-V system environment.
The SN74LVTH125 features independent line drivers with 3-state outputs. Each output is in the high-impedance
state when the associated output-enable (OE)\ input is high.
Active bus-hold circuitry holds unused or undriven inputs at a valid logic state. Use of pullup or pulldown resistors
with the bus-hold circuitry is not recommended.
When VCC is between 0 and 1.5 V, the device is in the high-impedance state during power up or power down.
However, to ensure the high-impedance state above 1.5 V, 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 driver.
This device is fully specified for hot-insertion applications using Ioff and power-up 3-state. The Ioff circuitry
disables the outputs, preventing damaging current backflow through the device when it is powered down. The
power-up 3-state circuitry places the outputs in the high-impedance state during power up and power down,
which prevents driver conflict.
