Common applications of buffers

Eliminate slow or noisy input signals

Sometimes slow or noisy signals are unavoidable in a system. This video discusses some of the specific issues seen when connecting a slow or noisy signal into a CMOS input, and what can be done to eliminate those signals.

Generate a reset signal at system power on

Some systems require an initialization pulse. This is commonly generated by the system controller, however many systems need the initialization prior to the controller's startup, or they may not have a controller at all. In these cases, a simple circuit can provide the required pulse with no programming required.

Redrive Digital Signals
System controllers can have weak output drive strength and thus cannot be used to directly transmit over relatively high capacitance signal lines. A logic buffer can be added to reduce loading and improve signal integrity.
