bits and chips help!
« on: February 19, 2004, 06:02:31 AM »

Hi All
First off i just want to say "GREAT SITE"  :thumbsup: . Ive been looking fore somthing like this all my life i think, all the hours i can spend trying new things.

ok now to the question i have
Is there an URL or web address, or even a program i could get that tell what all the chips and bits are /do on PCB's. its just that i have hundreds of old boards and cards just sitting here and would love to reuse bits from them (in some of the progects here).  i have found a site that explanes what the colours are on resistors  http://www.dannyg.com/examples/res2/resistor.htm     and now would love more info on chips

Welcome to the forums! Google will be your best friend... When i started in electronics my mom gave me one of those electronic kits from radshack that you can build simple circuits on spring loaded terminals...

Yeah, Google is going to be the best bet to find stuff like that.  Also, you can go to somewhere like NTE and do a Cross-Reference on a part:
http://nte01.nteinc.com/nte/NTExRefSemiProd.nsf/$$Search?OpenForm
And then find a datasheet for that part:
http://nte01.nteinc.com/nte/NTEMasterxRef.nsf/$$Search?OpenForm

When you need to get new parts for somthing, I find that DigiKey is best
http://www.digikey.com
for finding and ordering parts.  Its pretty confusing early on, but its not tooo hard to find a specific part.

Search for the part number in at Digikey and you will likely find the spec sheets.  And read the stickies, all of the stickies.
