This report contains a comprehensive collection of the input and output characteristic curves of typical integrated circuits from various logic families. These curves go beyond the information given in data sheets by providing additional details regarding the characteristics of the components. This knowledge is particularly useful when, for example, a decision must be made as to which circuit should be used in a bus system, or when the waveforms that can be expected in a transmission system need to be predicted by using a Bergeron chart. In addition, the waveforms at the outputs of these components are shown when loaded with a 50-W coaxial line, which is open circuited at the end of the line. These oscillograms are of great assistance when generating models for simulation programs that analyze the dynamic behavior of the integrated circuits in a particular environment.
