SN74LVC00A is a high-drive CMOS device that can be used for a multitude of buffer-type functions. It can produce 24 mA of drive current at 3.3 V. Therefore, this device is ideal for driving multiple inputs and for high-speed applications up to 100 MHz. The inputs and outputs are 5.5-V tolerant allowing the device to translate up to 5.5 V or down to VCC.
This device uses CMOS technology and has balanced output drive. Care should be taken to avoid bus contention because it can drive currents that would exceed maximum limits. The high drive will also create fast edges into light loads; therefore, routing and load conditions should be considered to prevent ringing.
