SN74HC138N 3-LINE TO 8-LINE DECODERS/DEMULTIPLEXERS
The ’HC138 devices are designed to be used in high-performance memory-decoding or data- routing applications requiring very short propagation delay times. In high-performance memory systems, these decoders can be used to minimize the effects of system decoding. When employed with high-speed memories utilizing a fast enable circuit, the delay times of these decoders and the enable time of the memory are usually less than the typical access time of the memory. This means that the effective system delay introduced by the decoders is negligible.
