The TC1410/TC1410N are 0.5A CMOS buffers/drivers. They will not latch-up under any conditions within their power and voltage ratings. They are not subject to damage when up to 5V of noise spiking of either polarity occurs on the ground pin. They can accept, without damage or logic upset, up to 500 mA of current of either polarity being forced back into their output. All terminals are fully protected against up to 4 kV of electrostatic discharge. As MOSFET drivers, the TC1410/TC1410N can easily charge a 500 pF gate capacitance in 25 nsec with matched rise and fall times, and provide low enough impedance in both the ‘ON’ and ‘OFF’ states to ensure the MOSFET’s intended state will not be affected, even by large transients. The leading and trailing edge propagation delay times are also matched to allow driving short-duration inputs with greater accuracy.
