The outputs, which are designed to source or sink up to 12 mA, include equivalent 22- series resistors to reduce overshoot and undershoot.
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.
These devices are 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 devices when they are 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.
Members of the Texas Instruments Widebus™ Family
Output Ports Have Equivalent 22- Series Resistors, So No External Resistors Are Required
Support Mixed-Mode Signal Operation (5-V Input and Output Voltages With 3.3-V VCC)
Support Unregulated Battery Operation Down to 2.7 V
Typical VOLP (Output Ground Bounce) <0.8 V at VCC = 3.3 V, TA = 25°C
Ioff and Power-Up 3-State Support Hot Insertion
Bus Hold on Data Inputs Eliminates the Need for External Pullup/Pulldown Resistors
Distributed VCC and GND Pins Minimize High-Speed Switching Noise
