shiftreg alternate IC

Can I replace the SN74LS164N in this project http://code.google.com/p/arduinoshiftreglcd/ with this one from SparkFun: 74HC595 http://www.sparkfun.com/products/733

The pins on the datasheets make it look like the same thing, just different pinouts.

Hi,

did you ever try it with the 74HC595?

I'm going to today, with this tutorial: http://code.google.com/p/arduinoshiftreglcd/ it looks like a great tutorial.

Are you going for the two or the three wire approach?

2 wire

Can I replace the SN74LS164N in this project

Quite simply yes.

Any progress? What kind of diode are you using?

I ended up using this to get my LCD working with the SRLCD library and that SparkFun IC, 74HC595.
