The LV family was introduced to provide the performance of 5 V HCMOS at the 3.0 V to 3.6 V supply voltage range. Typical operating range is from 1.0 V to 3.6 V however many functions are specified from 1.0 V to 5.5 V.
Features and benefits
- Wide operating voltage of 1.0 V to 5.5 V
- Broad family
- 9 ns typical propagation delay @ VCC = 3.0 V
- Output drive IOH / IOL = 6 / 8 mA @ VCC = 3.0 V and 12 / 16 mA @ VCC = 4.5 V
- Facilitates migration from 5 V to 3.3 V supply
- Consumer electronics
- Computer peripherals
LV logic devices are specified over 1.0 V to 3.6 V. With a balanced output drive of 6 mA and typical propagation delay of 9 ns, the LV family includes buffers/line drivers, transceivers, gates, shift registers and analog switches.
LV products are available in SO and TSSOP as well as innovative leadless DQFN packages for PCB space saving. NXP’s LV products are fully specified from -40 °C to 125 °C.
