TI’s customers are responsible for determining suitability of components for their purposes. Customers should validate and test their design implementation to confirm system functionality.
A common application for AND gates is their use in power sequencing. Power sequencing is often employed in applications that require a processor or other delicate device with specific voltage timing requirements in order to protect the device from malfunctioning. Using the SN74AHC1G08 to verify that the processor has turned on can protect it from any harmful signals.
The SN74AHC1G08 device uses CMOS technology and has balanced output drive. Take care to avoid bus contention because it can drive currents that would exceed maximum limits.
The SN74AHC1G08 allows switching control of analog and digital signals with a digital control signal. All input signals should remain as close to either 0 V or VCC as possible for optimal operation.
