One of the disadvantages of the SN74LS20 is its limited number of inputs per gate. For more complex applications, multiple ICs might be needed to perform the desired logical operation. Additionally, as with any digital IC, attention must be given to the voltage levels and timing requirements to ensure proper operation.
