The SN74LV164A is a low drive CMOS device that can be used for a multitude of bus interface type applications where output ringing is a concern. The low-drive and slow-edge rates will minimize overshoot and undershoot on the outputs.
This device uses CMOS technology and has balanced output drive. Take care to avoid bus contention because it can drive currents that would exceed maximum limits. The high drive will also create fast edges into light loads so consider routing and load conditions to prevent ringing.
