Part number : 7401, SN7401, SN7401N
Functions : Quadruple 2-Input Postive-NAND Gates
Package information : DIP 14 Pin Type
Manufacturer : Texas Instruments, Fairchild, National Semiconductor
This 7401 device contains four independent gates each of which performs the logic NAND function. The open-collector outputs require external pull-up resistors for proper logical operation.
These devices contain four independent 2-input NAND gates. The open-collector outputs require pull-up resistors to perform correctly. They may be connected to other open-collector outputs to implement active-low wired-OR or active-high wired-AND functions. Open-collector devices are often used to generate higher Voh levels.
