|Hitachi Releases HD74LV1GW-A Series of High-Speed, Low-Voltage Unilogic ICs Employing Small 6-Pin CMPAK-6 Package|
| Providing for smaller size and simpler wiring of high-speed, low-voltage systems for digital cameras and mobile phones, while enabling use of multiple functions in one device through 6-pin configuration |
Tokyo, January 29, 2003 Hitachi, Ltd. (TSE: 6501) today announced the HD74LV1GW-A Series as an extension of the Hitachi Unilogic IC Series enabling systems to be made smaller and system wiring to be simplified. The HD74LV1GW-A Series employs a small 6-pin CMPAK-6 package (Hitachi package code), and is intended for use in small, high-speed, low-voltage systems for digital cameras, mobile phones, and optical storage devices. A total of seven models are being released, including the initial HD74LV1GW04A model, with sample shipments starting in Japan in March 2003.
Products in this series offer one or two gates mounted in a single package, and are designed for use in low-voltage systems with a power supply voltage in the range of 1.65 V to 5.5 V, the propagation delay time (tpd) of 8.5 ns (max. at Vcc = 3.3 V). The new series offers small size through the use of a 6-pin package tailored to mounting of two gates, and a comprehensive product lineup providing a variety of functions. In addition, configurable multiple-function gate models planned for future development can be used for different functions by changing input pin connections, enabling a number of functions to be handled by a single product. This will simplify users' ordering and stock control procedures, and provide for rapid response to sudden design modifications.

< About these Products >
Sample distribution of five models in this series, including the configurable multiple-function gate model HD74LV1GW57A, is scheduled to begin in May. Configurable multiple-function gate models can be used as different logic circuits by changing input pin connections, enabling a number of functions to be handled by a single product. This will simplify users' ordering and stock control procedures, and provide for rapid response to sudden design modifications.
Products in the new series incorporate an input/output tolerant function, enabling them to be used in interfaces between signal levels in systems with a mix of different power supply voltages, for example.
· The following seven models are being released as initial products in the HD74LV1GW-A Series.
· The following five models are planned to begin sample distribution in May.
