Hey @DigiKey_Internal! My coffee isn’t working this morning and I could use another pair of eyes to make sure I’m understanding this request correctly.
Hello, I need a AND Gate IC but with a saving function. For example:
Signal A&B go into the input A&B of the IC meeting the AND requirement which releases signal C.
Usually if then one or both of the input signals go away the true status turns into false and the C output signal stops but I need it to continue.
I need the IC to omit the C output signal until the IC has gone from true→false→true again.
I hope that makes sense haha. Any recommendations?
False (idle state of the IC. Not outputting the C signal) →TRUE (the IC is omitting the C signal)→ FALSE (The IC is still omitting the signal)→TRUE (IC has stopped omitting the C signal)→FALSE ( IC is idle. Not omitting the C signal until TRUE)
To me, it sounds like an AND gate with a latch and I would imagine this would be in our Logic - Gates and Inverters - Multi-Function, Configurable category. But I see no such option for an AND/latch option. Is there another terminology or single-chip solution?
