“IC2 and IC3 (74hc165 and 74hc595). Orientation is important. The notch should be on the top. Please make sure that the labeling on the IC matches the labeling on the silkscreen ; and check the picture to verify that the two ICs are at the correct location. 74ls and 74hc are variants of the same chip”
This orientation would mean that the notch on the chip does not match the notch on the PCB. Is this correct? Or should I match the notches and ignore the text?
