SCLS873A July 2021 – October 2021 SN74HCS244
The SN74HCS244 can be used to drive signals over relatively long traces or transmission lines. In order to reduce ringing caused by impedance mismatches between the driver, transmission line, and receiver, a series damping resistor placed in series with the transmitter’s output can be used. The plot in the Application Curve section shows the received signal with three separate resistor values. Just a small amount of resistance can make a significant impact on signal integrity in this type of application.
