IC 74138 Pin Diagram, Truth Table, Logical Circuit, Applications

IC 74138 is a Logical Decoder IC. It also has a demultiplexing facility. The IC 74138 is available in the market with the name of 74LS138. It is a 3 to 8-decoder IC. The internal circuit of this IC is made of a high-speed Schottky barrier diode.

IC 74138 Pin Diagram

As you see in the below pin diagram, the IC 74LS138 has a total of sixteen pins.

IC 74138 pin diagram

1. The pin no. 8 and 16 are the ground and Vcc respectively for the power input.

2. There are a total of three input pins(pin no. 1, 2, 3). They are denoted by A0, A1, A2. So the IC 74LS138 can take three binary input signals.

3. There are three enable input pins E1, E2, E3(pin no. 4, 5, 6). E1 and E2 are the active LOW pins which means when low signals are applied to those pins they will be active.

4. Pins no. 7 and 9 to 15 are the output pins.
