AF-1641
DescriptionYou have some electrons over here, and you want them over there but you don't want the electrons from over there to be able to come over here? That's what a diode is for, these.....

SF-COM-09577
The M74HC238 is a high speed CMOS 3 to 8 line decoder. There are three binary select inputs (A, B, and C) which determine which one of the eight outputs (Y0-Y7) will go high. This.....

AF-450
DescriptionAdd lots more outputs to a microcontroller system with chainable shift registers. These chips take a serial input (SPI) of 1 byte (8 bits) and then output those digital bits onto 8 pins. You can.....
