The low voltage current-controlled gate (CCG) depicted in Fig. 1 operates over a wide range of power supply voltages, thus increasing reliability and versatility. Low Vf Schottky barrier diode (SBD) input gates allow operation on as low es 1.4 volts by lowering the input threshold to provide a better match for lower output levels.
