Meaning of TRANSISTOR-TRANSISTOR LOGIC

 
Computing Dictionary
 
 Definition: 

(TTL) A common semiconductor technology for building discrete digital logic integrated circuits. It originated from texas instruments in 1965.

There have been several series of TTL logic:

 7400:        10 ns propagation time, 10 mW/gate power consumption,
        obsolete;
 74L00:        Low power: higher resistances, less dissipation
        (1 mW), longer propagation time (30 ns);
 74H00: High power: lower resistances, more dissipation: less
        sensitivity for noise;
 74S00: Schottky-clamped: faster switching (3 ns, 19 mW) by
        using Schottky diodes to prevent the transistors from
        saturation;
 74LS00: Low power, Schottky-clamped (10 ns, 2 mW);
 74AS00: Advanced Schottky: faster switching, less
         dissipation, (1.5 ns, 10 mW);
 74ALS00: Advanced Low power Schottky (4 ns, 1.3 mW).

For each 74xxx family there is a corresponding 54xxx family. The 74 series are specified for operation at 0 - 70 C whereas the 54 (military) series can operate at -55 - 125 C
