Diodes Incorporated Adds Shift Registers And Decoders To Enhanced CMOS Logic Families

Diodes Incorporated (Nasdaq: DIOD), a leading global manufacturer and supplier of high-quality application specific standard products within the broad discrete, logic and analog semiconductor markets, today announced the addition of standard shift register and decoder logic ICs to its enhanced 74HC, 74HCT, 74AHC and 74AHCT CMOS logic families. Based on the company’s updated 5V CMOS process, the popular 595, 594 and 138 logic functions offer improvements versus industry-standard alternatives in power-to-performance ratio and ESD protection, making them suitable for smart domestic appliances, data communication, and residential and industrial control applications.

The 8-bit shift register with 8-bit storage register (with and without tri-state outputs) and 3-to-8 line decoder are direct drop-in replacements for industry-standard logic devices, and are available in a choice of SO-16 and TSSOP-16 packages.

With a wide 2.0V to 5.5V operating voltage range, these logic parts are suitable for an array of uses, including 5V legacy systems and residential and industrial control systems. Additionally, the input hysteresis of the 24 new devices makes them less susceptible to problems of slow rising or falling data signals.
