What is 7410? – Triple 3-input NAND gate

What is 7410?

This is a type of integrated circuit (IC) that belongs to the 7400 series TTL logic family. It is a triple 3-input NAND gate with open collector outputs, meaning that the outputs can only sink current and cannot source it.

The TTL 7410 IC operates on a supply voltage of 4.75V to 5.25V and has a maximum propagation delay of 22 nanoseconds. It is commonly used in digital electronics for tasks such as signal processing, logic operations, and control systems.

Part Number: 7410

Function: Triple 3-input NAND gate

Package: DIP 14 Pin Type

Manufacturer: Philips




The 74HC10, 7410, 74HCT10 are high-speed Si-gate CMOS devices and are pin compatible with low power Schottky TTL (LSTTL). They are specified in compliance with JEDEC standard no. 7A. The 74HC/HCT10 provide the 3-input NAND function.


• Output capability: standard

• ICC category: SSI

Advantages Vs Disadvantages


1. Fast operation due to low propagation delay
2. Simple and easy to use with standard TTL input levels
3. Reliable and robust with high noise immunity
4. Low power consumption compared to other families of ICs
5. Wide availability and low cost


1. Limited to a maximum operating frequency of around 20 MHz
2. Generates more heat than CMOS ICs due to higher power consumption
3. Cannot be used with non-TTL-compatible input levels
4. Open collector outputs require external pull-up resistors to produce logic-high outputs


1. Can it be used with a 3.3V power supply?

No, It is designed to operate on a supply voltage of 4.75V to 5.25V and cannot be used with a 3.3V power supply without a level shifter.

2. How does the open collector output of it work?

The open collector output of device can only sink current, meaning that it can be used to connect to a voltage source through an external pull-up resistor to produce a logic-high output. If the output is not connected to a pull-up resistor, it will be in a floating state and produce an undefined output voltage.

The 7400 series TTL logic family was widely used in the 1970s and 1980s, but has since been largely replaced by newer families of ICs such as CMOS and FPGA.
