Abstract

This driver circuit receives input levels of 0.4 V to 3.0 V from internal cells on a chip, and drives output TTL levels of 0.6 V at 16 mA to 2.4 V at 0.4 mA. While this circuit may be dotted with open collector and three-state drivers, the transient drive characteristics are those of an active collector driver.
