Features and Applications
The first CMOS (Complementary Metal–Oxide–Semiconductor) logic family of integrated circuits was introduced 1968. Initially CMOS logic was slower than LS-TTL; however, because the logic thresholds of CMOS were proportional to the power supply voltage, CMOS devices were well-adapted to battery-operated systems with simple power supplies.
Because of the incompatibility of the CD4000 series of chips with the previous TTL family, a new standard emerged which combined the best of the TTL family with the advantages of the CD4000 family. It was known as the 74HC (High performance silicon gate) family of devices.
With HC/HCT logic and LS-TTL logic competing in the market it became clear that a logic device that combined high speed, with low power dissipation and compatibility with older logic families was needed. A whole range of newer families has emerged that use CMOS technology. Some of the more important family designators of these newer devices includes LV/LVT/ALVT.
The MM74HC595 high speed shift register utilizes advanced silicon-gate CMOS technology. This device possesses the high noise immunity and low power consumption of standard CMOS integrated circuits, as well as the ability to drive 15 LS-TTL loads.
This device contains an 8-bit serial-in, parallel-out shift register that feeds an 8-bit D-type storage register. The storage register has 8 3-STATE outputs. Separate clocks are provided for both the shift register and the storage register. The shift register has a direct-overriding clear, serial input, and serial output (standard) pins for cascading. Both the shift register and storage register use positive-edge triggered clocks. If both clocks are connected together, the shift register state will always be one clock pulse ahead of the storage register.
The 74HC logic family is speed, function, and pin-out compatible with the standard 74LS logic family. All inputs are protected from damage due to static discharge by internal diode clamps to VCC and ground.
The Fairchild MM74HC595MX is an 8-Bit CMOS Shift Register with Output Latches. It comes in a 16 Pin SOIC Tape and Reel Package.
