These octal buffers and line drivers are designed specifically to improve both the performance and density of 3-state memory address drivers, clock drivers, and bus-oriented receivers and transmitters. The ’HC244 devices are organized as two 4-bit buffers/drivers with separate output-enable OE inputs. When OE is low, the device passes noninverted data from the A inputs to the Y outputs. When OE is high, the outputs are in the high-impedance state.
Wide Operating Voltage Range of 2 V to 6 V
High-Current Outputs Drive Up To 15 LSTTL Loads
3-State Outputs Drive Bus Lines or Buffer Memory Address Registers
