Texas Instruments  SN74GTL16622ADGGR

The SN74GTL16622A is an 18-bit registered bus transceiver that provides LVTTL-to-GTL/GTL+ and GTL/GTL+-to-LVTTL signal-level translation. This device is partitioned as two separate 9-bit transceivers with individual clock-enable controls and contains D-type flip-flops for temporary storage of data flowing in either direction. This device provides an interface between cards operating at LVTTL logic levels and a backplane operating at GTL/GTL+ signal levels. Higher speed operation is a direct result of the reduced output swing (<1 V), reduced input threshold levels, and OEC™ circuitry.

The user has the flexibility of using this device at either GTL (VTT = 1.2 V and VREF = 0.8 V) or the preferred higher noise margin GTL+ (VTT = 1.5 V and VREF = 1 V) signal levels. GTL+ is the Texas Instruments derivative of the Gunning Transceiver Logic (GTL) JEDEC standard JESD 8-3. The B port normally operates at GTL or GTL+ signal levels, while the A-port and control inputs are compatible with LVTTL logic levels and are 5-V tolerant. VREF is the reference input voltage for the B port.

Data flow in each direction is controlled by the output-enable (OEAB\ and OEBA\) and clock (CLKAB and CLKBA) inputs. The clock-enable (CEAB\ and CEBA\) inputs control each 9-bit transceiver independently, which makes the device more versatile. For A-to-B data flow, the device operates on the low-to-high transition of CLKAB if CEAB\ is low. When OEAB\ is low, the outputs are active. When OEAB\ is high, the outputs are in the high-impedance state. Data flow for B to A is similar to that of A to B, but uses OEBA\, CLKBA, and CEBA\.

This device is fully specified for partial-power-down applications using Ioff. The Ioff circuitry disables the outputs, preventing damaging current backflow through the device when it is powered down.

Active bus-hold circuitry holds unused or undriven LVTTL inputs at a valid logic state. Use of pullup or pulldown resistors with the bus-hold circuitry is not recommended.

To ensure the high-impedance state during power up or power down, OE\ should be tied to VCC through a pullup resistor; the minimum value of the resistor is determined by the current-sinking capability of the driver.
