BUS keeper is to keep last state on the bus, basically, it's flipflop constructed by two inverter, but its output drive ability is limited. its output is connected on bus. in normal operation, it take no effect on normal logic level, but when bus is into tristate, the last logic level is keeped by bus keeper to prevent bus from floating.
