These devices contain four independent 2-input NAND buffer gates with open-collector outputs. 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 high VOH?levels.
The SN5438, SN54LS38, and SN54S38 are characterized for operation over the full military temperature range of -55?C to 125?C. The SN7438, SN74LS38, and SN74S38 are characterized for operation from 0?C to 70?C.
