UDN2981

Recommended for high-side switching applications that benefit from separate logic and load grounds, these devices encompass load supply voltages to 50 V and output currents to -500 mA. These 8-channel source drivers are useful for interfacing between low-level logic and high-current loads. Typical loads include relays, solenoids, lamps, stepper and/or servo motors, print hammers, and LEDs. All devices may be used with 5 V logic systems — TTL, Schottky TTL, DTL, and 5 V CMOS. The device packages offered are electrically interchangeable, and will withstand a maximum output off voltage of 50 V, and operate to a minimum of 5 V. All devices in this series integrate input current limiting resistors and output transient suppression diodes, and are activated by an active high input.

8 x 8 x 8 LED Cube Powered by an Arduino Mega

“This cube is easy to build with no circuit board and minimum external components; and it comes with a lot of animations and effects. This is the third and final project in a series to see how much LED cube …

Temperature and Humidity Meter Using IV-11 VFD Tubes

“The displays are driven with a daisy chained shift register. The converter on the left generates the 24V rail and the centre converter provides 1.5V for the filaments. Both converters can be disconnected via jumper for initial setup and …

Robust design combining 74HC595, ULN2803, UDN2981 and BC327

“In some situations, in your designs with Arduino and microcontrollers, you can use a shift register like 74HC595 to directly trigger LED, LED array and displays, but if you check the datasheet, you will see that you need to be …
