SCBS023C − MARCH 1989 − REVISED APRIL 1994
The SN74BCT29846 features 3-state outputs designed specifically for driving highly capacitive or relatively
low-impedance loads. It is particularly suitable for implementing buffer registers, I/O ports, bidirectional bus
drivers, and working registers.
The eight latches of the SN74BCT29846 are transparent D-type latches. The SN74BCT29846 has inverting
data (D) inputs. Since clear (CLR) and preset (PRE) are independent of the clock, taking the CLR input low will
cause the eight Q outputs to go low. Taking the PRE input low will cause the eight Q outputs to go high. When
both PRE and CLR are taken low, the outputs will follow the preset condition.
The buffered output-enable (OE1, OE2, and OE3) inputs can be used to place the eight outputs in either a
normal logic state (high or low levels) or a high-impedance state. The outputs are also in the high-impedance
state during power-up and power-down conditions. The outputs remain in the high-impedance state while the
device is powered-down. In the high-impedance state, the outputs neither load nor drive the bus lines
significantly. The high-impedance state and increased drive provide the capability to drive the bus lines in a
bus-organized system without need for interface or pull-up components. The output enables do not affect the
internal operation of the latches. Old data can be retained or new data can be entered while the outputs are in
the high-impedance state.
The SN74BCT29846 is characterized for operation from 0°C to 70°C.
