Schottky TTL

Schottky TTL A relatively fast bipolar logic family, normally produced in integrated-circuit form, whose internal configuration is similar to normal TTL except that Schottky transistors are used. These transistors can be considered as equivalent to a normal bipolar transistor with a Schottky diode connected across the base-collector junction. The Schottky diode is a semiconductor-metal diode that has a low cut-in voltage (forward bias voltage drop), typically 300 millivolts, compared with 600 mV for other common semiconductor diodes. It also has a relatively high switching speed. In Schottky TTL the low cut-in voltage of the diode limits the base-collector voltage to about 400 mV, which prevents the transistor falling into saturation. This results in faster switching times for the transistors constructed in this way.

Learn more about citation styles

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
