App note: Understanding and interpreting logic IC datasheets

Posted on Sunday, August 5th, 2012 in app notes by DP

This app note from Texas Instruments focuses on understanding and interpreting datasheets for logic ICs.

To assist component and system-design engineers in selecting Texas Instruments (TI) standard-logic products, this application report is a synopsis of the information available from a typical TI data sheet. Information includes a brief description of terms, definitions, and testing procedures currently used for commercial and military specifications. Symbols, terms, and definitions generally are in accordance with those currently agreed upon by the JEDEC Solid State Technology Association for use in the USA and by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) for international use.
