The NC7ST04 is a single high performance CMOSInverter, with TTL-compatible inputs. Advanced SiliconGate CMOS fabrication assures high speed and low powercircuit operation. ESD protection diodes inherently guardboth input and output with respect to the VCC and GNDrails. High gain circuitry offers high noise immunity andreduced sensitivity to input edge rate. The TTL-compatibleinput facilitates TTL to NMOS/CMOS interfacing. Deviceperformance is similar to MM74HCT but with ½ the outputcurrent drive of HC/HCT.
