Hello, is it possible to use TPIC6595, TPIC6B595 and TPIC6C595 dasiy chain together to control LEDs? The maximum current i would sink into each chip is 160mA, this should be under the maximum current limit for either TPIC6595, TPIC6B595 or TPIC6C595.
The reason i want to use a mix is because  i can only sample up to 5 of each chip and i need 12 x 8 bit shift register in total, hence i am wondering if i can use a mix of shift register to reduce the budget fo my project.
i am using this for my POV display project and below is a link to another post that descirbes my project.
