Abstract

A unique buffer circuitry that selects output drive while controlling the overlap current is designed to address the need to reduce power consumption, operate at low voltage, vary output drive for different output loading, and reduce noise and RPl associated with large output drivers driving lightly loaded outputs. The new circuit is employ- able on virtually any product requiring selectable output drive.
