  Diodes Incorporated Expands General-Purpose Low-Voltage CMOS Logic Family
  for Wide Application Range

Business Wire

PLANO, Texas -- January 24, 2013

Diodes Incorporated (Nasdaq: DIOD), a leading global manufacturer and supplier
of high-quality application specific standard products within the broad
discrete, logic and analog semiconductor markets, today announced the rapid
expansion of its standard logic product line, with more package options added
to its four families of high-speed and advanced high-speed CMOS parts.
Provided in a choice of SO14 and TSSOP14 packages, the HC, HCT, AHC and AHCT
logic families each offer 10 of the most popular logic functions in quad and
hex configurations. The devices are widely used in computing, consumer
electronics, domestic appliance, building control and industrial automation
applications.

The quad device configurations include dual-input AND, NAND, OR and XOR gates
and output enable low and high tri-state buffers. The hex arrangements
comprise single input inverters, unbuffered inverters, inverters with open
drains and inverters with Schmitt trigger inputs. These are direct
replacements for mature industry-standard logic devices, and utilize modern
process technology to create up-to-date logic functions offering an improved
power to performance ratio and enhanced ESD classification.

The wide supply voltage range covered by the new logic families, from 2.0V
through to 5.5V, means they will support legacy 5V applications and can be
tailored for lower voltage and lower power applications as well. HCT and AHCT
versions provide TTL compatibility and can replace 74LS bipolar logic types.
In addition, all devices include optimized inputs with hysteresis to help
avoid any noise problems due to slow-rising or slow-falling signals. Drawing
less than 10µA at an ambient of +25ºC, the products also meet the needs of
energy-sensitive design. For further information, visit the Company’s website
