The AUP family of devices is TIs premier solution to the industrys low-power needs in
battery-powered portable applications. This family ensures a very low static- and dynamic-power
consumption across the entire VCC range of 0.8 V to 3.6 V, resulting in
increased battery life. This product also maintains excellent signal integrity (see
AUP – The Lowest-Power Family and Excellent Signal Integrity).
This device functions as an independent gate with Schmitt-trigger inputs, which allows
for slow input transition and better switching-noise immunity at the input.
NanoStar™ package technology is a major breakthrough in IC packaging concepts, using the
die as the package.
This device is fully specified for partial-power-down applications using
Ioff. The Ioff circuitry disables the outputs when
the device is powered down. This inhibits current backflow into the device which prevents damage to
