54ACQ245 • 54ACTQ245
Quiet Series Octal Bidirectional Transceiver with
The ’ACQ/’ACTQ245 contains eight non-inverting bidirec-
tional buffers with TRI-STATE outputs and is intended for
bus-oriented applications. Current sinking capability is
24 mA at both the A and B ports. The Transmit/Receive (T/R)
input determines the direction of data flow through the bidi-
rectional transceiver. Transmit (active-HIGH) enables data
from A ports to B ports; Receive (active-LOW) enables data
from B ports to A ports. The Output Enable input, when
HIGH, disables both A and B ports by placing them in a HIGH
The ’ACQ/’ACTQ utilizes NSC Quiet Series technology to
guarantee quiet output switching and improve dynamic
threshold performance. FACT Quiet Series™ features
GTO™ output control and undershoot corrector in addition to
a split ground bus for superior performance.
