74-series “glue” logic functions push down power consumption

February 12, 2015 // By Graham Prophet
8-pin miniature logic devices from Diodes Inc. contribute to reducing power drain the advanced ultra-low power CMOS logic family is augmented with dual-gate devices in the miniature, leadless 8-pin DFN1210 package.

The latest 74AUP2G logic devices operate over a 0.8V to 3.6V supply voltage range, supporting low system voltages while delivering a standard ±4 mA output. With quiescent current less than 0.9 µA, static power consumption is low, while the typical CPD rating of 6 pF at 3.6V reduces dynamic power consumption.

Seven dual gate logic functions are offered: AND, NAND, OR, NOR, XOR and a choice of two tri-state buffers. With a footprint of 1.2 x 1.0 mm and a height of 0.35 mm, the DFN1210 format is one of the smallest 8-pin packages. The miniature-packaged parts are designed to complement Diodes’ previously released 74AUP2G 6-pin dual-gate and 74AUP1G single-gate advanced ultra-low power logic. These 8-pad logic devices are priced at $0.12 (5000)
