Lower-power series of basic logic functions

January 17, 2014 // By Graham Prophet
Diodes Inc. has a family of dual gate, advanced, ultra-low power CMOS logic devices for low voltage, low energy operation; the 74AUP2G family can help extend battery cell lifetime.

With a leakage current of less than 0.9 µA, the logic devices’ static power consumption is low, and a typical power dissipation capacitance of 6 pF at 3.6V means dynamic power consumption is also minimised. Operating over the 0.8V to 3.6V range, the 74AUP2G family enables circuit supplies to be reduced to lowest practical levels.

The ultra-low power 74AUP2G logic family initially comprises seven different dual gate devices offering combinations of inversion and buffering functions: inverters; inverters with open-drain output; buffers; buffers with open-drain output; Schmitt trigger inverters and Schmitt trigger buffers.

Each dual gate logic device is provided in three different leadless packages: DFN0910, DFN1010 and DFN1410. Measuring 0.9 x 1.0 x 0.35 mm, the DFN0910 is one of the world’s smallest six-pin packages, enabling both space and weight savings.

The 74AUP2G dual gate advanced ultra low power logic devices from Diodes Incorporated are priced at $0.13 (5,000).
