PHILIPS Electronics has launched the industry's first multi-function PicoGate logic semiconductor optimised for crystal oscillator applications.
The new 74LVC1GX04 crystal driver combines the functions of an un-buffered inverter and a driver into one logic device so designers can reduce component count, save board space and accelerate time to market.
Crystal controlled oscillator circuits are widely used in clock generators due to their frequency stability and wide operating frequency range. The use of the 74LVC1GX04 crystal driver provides the additional advantages of low power dissipation and stable operation over a wide range of frequencies and temperatures.
The new device is manufactured in a small footprint package, making it suitable for mobile computing, telecommunications, networking and automotive applications.
The 74LVC1Gx04 crystal driver operates between 1.65 and 5.5V with symmetrical 24mA output drive capability. It is available in both the SOT363 (2.0 x 2.1mm) and SOT457 (2.75 x 2.9mm) PicoGate packages.
