Module Tester - 74HC595

Hi Everybody!,

I’m buying parts for the Module Tester from the BOM from github. I’ve run into a number of obsolete parts that (I hope) I’ve successfully navigated through.
The only one that’s giving me pause is the 74HC595: I find (qty. 3) PID-16s at Mouser that could fit the bill, but there is enough about their specs that is different from the original that I’m compelled to seek help:

http://www.mouser.com/Semiconductors/Logic-ICs/Counter-Shift-Registers/_/N-55d4hZscv7?P=1z0vxzuZ1z0smhqZ1z0z44d&FS=True

The second on that selection seems to fit the specs the closest, but it is expensive enough to merit the concurrence of others (y’all).

I find SMD 595s that match the original specs better and I’m comfortable building with SMD, so if the consensus is to get an adapter for it I will follow the advice.

  • The *195, has a similar story (THT specs match more closely, but): THT CMOS appears passing into obsolescence. Alas, we hardly knew ye.

Please leave me your thoughts and anything else you can spare,
Dugan

Which specs are you talking about? as long as it accepts +5V, and has 595 on it, it’ll work.

I guess I was being OCD about it; I ordered http://www.mouser.com/Search/ProductDetail.aspx?R=SN74HC595Nvirtualkey59500000virtualkey595-SN74HC595N much more reasonably priced.
Thanks Olivier!
