The AC540 is an octal buffer/line drivers designed to be employed as memory and address drivers, clock drivers and bus oriented transmitter/receivers.
These devices are similar in function to the AC240 while providing flow-through architecture (inputs on opposite side from outputs). This pinout arrangement makes these devices especially useful as output ports for microprocessors, allowing ease of layout and greater PC board density.
■ ICC and IOZ reduced by 50%
■ 3-STATE inverting outputs
■ Inputs and outputs opposite side of package, allowing easier interface to microprocessors
■ Output source/sink 24 mA
