The VHC14 is an advanced high speed CMOS Hex Schmitt Inverter fabricated with silicon gate CMOS technology. It achieves the high speed operation similar to equiva lent Bipolar Schottky TTL while maintaining the CMOS lowpower dissipation. Pin configuration and function are thesame as the VHC04 but the inputs have hysteresisbetween the positive-going and negative-going inputthresholds, which are capable of transforming slowlychanging input signals into sharply defined, jitter-free out put signals, thus providing greater noise margin than conventional inverters.
An input protection circuit ensures that 0V to 7V can be applied to the input pins without regard to the supply voltage. This device can be used to interface 5V to 3V systems and two supply systems such as battery back up. This circuit prevents device destruction due to mismatched supply and input voltages.
