 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

I just cataloged a grab-bag of 7400 series ICs I picked up at Jameco. What would be the best way to split these into a few categories for easy storage/retrieval? I'm planning to throw all the logic gates into one category, but I'm wondering about the rest.

PS: I'm about 90% sure of these, and I certainly don't expect anyone to check if I'm right about all these, but if you see any glaring errors, I'd appreciate a heads up. Thanks!

Hi,
Real question is how are you going to store these??  I have 1000+ TTL type parts and 100's of linear parts and I think I've spent about as many $ on Plastic boxes etc. as they are worth (these days, not when I got them).. 

Are you willing to dig thru a "category" to find parts??  Problem then is you need to know what the Part numbers really are..

I'd suggest keeping a printout of part numbers VS function (And searchable version on your machine). And then I might separate them in categories:

- logic functions
- register-oriented, including shift registers
- buffer-oriented, including 3-state drivers, Open Collector drivers etc.
- Complex functions like counters, decoders etc.
- Interface components like comparators, A-D and  D-A Converters etc.

Then there's all the Linear stuff!

Let us know what you decide...

The plan is to store them in anti-static bags inside the drawers in my component cabinet. I'll start off with the categories you gave me and build from there. Thanks!

Get a large piece of strong polystyrene foam about 1/4 inch thick and wrap it in aluminium foil.  Stick all the devices into this in numerical order (each section having a little space around it) and then use a marker pen to draw round each section and write the number.  Easy to find what you want and less fuss than lots of bags.  It holds chips firmly enough you can use both sides too.

To avoid static discharge touch the foil with one hand before inserting ICs into it with the other - so you and the foil are at the same potential (polystyrene can build up static charges readily and transfer them to the foil, alas).

The special anti-static foam plastic would be the ideal choice but its usually black and can't be written on.  I have seen pink stuff though which would work.

A cool idea I saw in an idustrial setting, perhaps you can arduino size,is
catalogged moving shelves that spin on a big rack
they have a display that you can scroll thru inventory or search something and when you select it the shelves will automatically spin and bring the shelf to you, perhaps you can make something smaller than a 30x10ft machine, but a smaller one with boxes
you can use an arduino to make a nice interface to select what you want or are looking for, then it will control some motors, sensors to bring it right to you
probably only worth it if you have thousands but I tnink it would be a cool idea to bring to electronics storage

I only ever use XAND and XNAND gates.

ecDB is something you can use to catalog parts.  I haven't really put a lot of things in, but If you catalog them all and add a comment with alphanumeric coordinates for each one, it will be easy to find them(if you use drawers or the polystyrene mentioned above.)
