TinyLogic Ics Type NC7SZ57/58
Configurable logic gates
The thing about these TinyLogic integrated circuits from Fairchild’s UHS series is that they allow up to five different gate combinations to be created, including versions with two identical inputs, or an inverting and a ‘true’ input.Fairchild’s ‘TinyLogic’ family was originally introduced about five years ago. The series comprises a wide range of single and dual gate logic functions in a number of small SMD enclosures (hence ‘tiny’). Compared with the commonly seen ‘small outline’ cases of similar CMOS ICs, TinyLogic devices offer considerable space savings on printed circuit boards.
