74HC244D

Octal buffer/line driver; 3-state

The 74HC244; 74HCT244 is an 8-bit buffer/line driver with 3-state outputs. The device can be used as two 4-bit buffers or one 8-bit buffer. The device features two output enables (1OE and 2OE), each controlling four of the 3-state outputs. A HIGH on nOE causes the outputs to assume a high-impedance OFF-state. Inputs include clamp diodes that enable the use of current limiting resistors to interface inputs to voltages in excess of VCC.

Features and benefits

  • CMOS low power dissipation

  • High noise immunity

  • Latch-up performance exceeds 100 mA per JESD 78 Class II Level B

  • Input levels:

    • For 74HC244: CMOS level

    • For 74HCT244: TTL level

  • Octal bus interface

  • Non-inverting 3-state outputs

  • Complies with JEDEC standards:

    • JESD8C (2.7 V to 3.6 V)

    • JESD7A (2.0 V to 6.0 V)

  • ESD protection:

Sample

As a Nexperia customer you can order samples via our sales organization.

If you do not have a direct account with Nexperia our network of global and regional distributors is available and equipped to support you with Nexperia samples. Check out the list of official distributors.

How does it work?

The interactive datasheets are based on the Nexperia MOSFET precision electrothermal models. With our interactive datasheets you can simply specify your own conditions interactively. Start by changing the values of the conditions. You can do this by using the sliders in the condition fields. By dragging the sliders you will see how the MOSFET will perform at the new conditions set.
