1. Totem Pole :
Totem pole consists of pull up and pull down transistors along with the diode resistor.Totem pole operates at high speed. The two transistors used drives a high output and another pulls it down in an Integrated circuit.
2. Open collector :
In case of open collector we only have pull down transistor and it operates at slow speed. Open collector behaves like a switch in which it is either connected or disconnected in an Integrated circuit.
Difference between of Totem Pole and Open Collector :
|Totem Pole||Open Collector|
|Output stage of totem pole circuit consists of pull-up transistor, diode resistor and a pull down transistor.||Output stage of Open collector consists of only pull down transistor.|
|Outputs of the two gates cannot be tied up together||output of two gates can be tied together using a wired AND method.|
|Operating speed of totem pole circuit is high as compared to open collector||Operating speed is low for open collector|
|External pull up resistor is not required in case of totem pole||External pull up resistor is required for proper operation of gate in open collectors|
|Due to the presence of pull up transistor, power dissipation is low in totem pole circuits||In cae of open collector, power dissipation is high due to the current flowing trough the extra resistors.|
