9-bit odd/even parity generators / checkers - SN74LS280


These universal, monolithic, nine-bit parity generators/checkers utilize Schottky-clamped TTL high-performance circuitry and feature odd/even outputs to facilitate operation of either odd or even parity application. The word-length capability is easily expanded by cascading as shown under typical application data.

Series 54LS/74LS and Series 54S/74S parity generators/checkers offer the designer a trade-off between reduced power consumption and high performance. These devices can be used to upgrade the performance of most systems utilizing the '180 parity generator/checker. Although the 'LS280 and 'S280 are implemented without expander inputs, the corresponding function is provided by the availability of an input at pin 4 and the absence of any internal connection at pin 3. This permits the 'LS280 and 'S280 to be substituted for the '180 in existing designs to produce an identical function even if 'LS280's and 'S280's are mixed with existing '180's.

These devices are fully compatible with most other TTL circuits. All 'LS280 and 'S280 inputs are buffered to lower the drive requirements to one Series 54LS/74LS or Series 54S/74S standard load, respectively.



  • Generates Either Odd or Even Parity for Nine Data Lines
  • Cascadable for n-Bits
  • Can Be Used to Upgrade Existing Systems using MSI Parity Circuits
  • Typical Data-to-Output Delay of Only 14 ns for 'S280 and 33 ns for 'LS280
  • Typical Power Dissipation:
    • 'LS280 … 80 mW
    • 'S280 … 335 mW
