I want to use the 74LS244 as a bus transceiver but according to the datasheet, the maximum output current is 15 mA, while the maximum output flow back current is 24 mA.
What I think is that if I connect another output to the same data bus, the second one will pull the dataline down to low. Is there any way to connect multiple outputs to the bus?
I also want to ask if anyone knows how can I find the graph for input voltage vs input current of 74LSXX ICs since I'm designing circuits that have multiple inputs on the same line and I want to know if the output can provide enough current for them.
I know that I could find the input current in the datasheet but it only has the current rating for minimum and maximum voltage input.
