The SN74x7 device is a high-drive, open-collector device that is used for multiple buffer-type functions. The device produces 30 mA of drive current. Therefore, this device is ideal for driving multiple inputs and for high-speed applications up to 100 MHz. The outputs are high voltage tolerant up to 30 V for the SNx407.
Avoid bus contention because it can drive currents that would exceed maximum limits. The high drive also creates fast edges into light loads; therefore, routing and load conditions must be considered to prevent ringing.
