The company’s first family of single-gate logic devices are built on an advanced 5V CMOS process. The 74LVC1Gxx series provides the eight most popular standard logic functions in SOT25 and SOT353 package options and the 74LVCE1Gxx series offers enhanced performance versions of the same functions. Suitable for use in a variety of equipment, the initial offering covers AND, NAND, OR, NOR, XOR, inversion, and buffering functions. The single-gate products are cost effective replacements for industry standard parts in point-of-application general purpose logic, level shifting, and signal-isolation applications. With an operating voltage range of 1.65V to 5.5V, the 74LVC1Gxx series supports both battery operated and traditional 5V applications. For higher performance applications, the 74LVCE1Gxx devices operate down to 1.4V and provide a 30% enhancement in switching speeds at 1.8V as compared to the standard LVC family. Both families have 5.5V tolerant inputs. The 74LVC1Gxx devices are priced from $0.06 each/10,000 and the 74LVCE1Gxx cost $0.08 each/10,000.
