Hi, i am intersting to use this shift register TPIC6C596N with arduino like common 595.

on the datasheet it says about these pins
RCK-register clock
CLR-shift register clear
SRCK-shift register clock
SER IN-serial input

shiftout uses these pins
clockPin
latchPin
dataPin

what pins do i need to connect to use shiftout command? and what is the different RCK and SRCK?

or better question how can i make this work with arduino?

edit:

i  was trying to understand and i think its ok:

SERIN=DATAPIN
SRCK=CLOCKPIN
RCK= LATCHPIN

CLEAR= it just clear the registers when it goes on low

is this correct?

The pinout is exactly the same it is just that they call the pin functions by different names. Just use the same pin numbers as you see in the tutorial.

not they are not the same
