The 74HCT158 is a high-speed Si-gate CMOS device
and is pin compatible with low power Schottky TTL
(LSTTL). The 74HCT158 is a quad 2-input multiplexer which selects 4 bits of data from two sources and is controlled by a common data select input (S). The four outputs present the selected data in the inverted form. The enable input (E) is active LOW. When E is HIGH, all the outputs (1Y to 4Y) are forced HIGH regardless of all other input conditions. Moving the data from two groups of registers to four common output buses is a common use of the 74HCT158. The state of S determines the particular register from which the data comes. It can also be used as a function generator. The device is useful for implementing highly irregular logic by generating any four of the 16 different functions of two variables with one variable common. The 74HCT158 is the logic implementation of a 4-pole, 2-position switch, where the position of the switch is determined by the logic levels applied to S.
