First, we start with what exactly those chips are. Datasheets attached.

Then we go to "Projects", second page, where I asked for exactly the same thing (for two different chips) 3 days ago, and got nothing for an answer. Apparently the answer is, "Not Frankly Likely", but you never know. There are some pretty smart denizens on this site.

SN75374 is an active part; TI's making them.
http://www.ti.com/product/sn75374
Arrow Electronics has them in stock:

Mouser: http://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/Texas-Instruments/SN75374N/?qs=sGAEpiMZZMvbYnN5EaJWBGMSBcrQTnKjT6fEbhBixck=

Futurlec apparently has some LM3909's in stock:

but their customer service is terrible, they charge your credit card right away, and your shipment might not arrive for months. Futurlec is not an authorized distributor for National, so I have sincere doubts if they are the "real thing".

The LM3909 was discontinued years ago.
Here is a discrete equivalent of an LM3909:

Although you'd be better off to just use something like a CMOS 555 timer.

From the other thread that you started:
I am a mechanic (for) medical equipment
Please help me with an equivalent Ic to SN75374N
its used (in) a portable ultra sound machine
this ic SN75374N used in a prob circuit board
this ic is (dead) (short circuit) it is not available in Pakistan
please suggest an equivalent IC
thanks
&
how (can) I find the equivalent electronics component?
This will be hard for us to do. We have no idea what might be available in Pakistan. Besides this, I do not know of another MOSFET gate driver that has the same exact function.

Can you order parts from Singapore or India?
Mouser in Singapore has SN75374N ICs available:
