Re: Buffering for the HC11
- Inverters are more useful than non-inverting buffers for several
reasons. Aside from buffering you can use these gates as
multivibrators, integrators, differentiators as well as inverting a
logic signal. In some cases, you can use 2 inverting gates to create
a non-inverting buffer and use the other gates for something else
reducing total chip count (assuming you only need one or two
buffers). All you can do with a regular buffer is to buffer.
