San Jose, Calif. - Philips Semiconductors has expanded its family of advanced low-voltage CMOS (ALVC) logic with the introduction of octal bit-width devices to complement the 16- and 32-bit parts and the single-, dual- and triple-gate logic it rolled out earlier this year. Priced at 35 cents in lots of 10,000, and available in TSSOP and SO packages, the octals include a buffer/line driver, a transceiver, a D-type transparent latch and a D-type flip-flop positive-edge trigger. A bus hold option eliminates the need for external resistors.
Philips' ALVC family supports an operating range from 1.65 to 3.6 volts and is optimized for 3.3-V applications, said Bruce Potvin, director of marketing, business lines logic. The parts target PC, telecom, networking and portable apps. The octals "provide the logic building blocks that designers need to interface with high-density, low-voltage ASICs and microprocessors," he said.
