Hi just to ask if anybody knows a 16Bit wide seriel input device with 16 parallel outputs. If nobody knows I will use 2 8bit.
You could use the Microchip MCP23S17.
Good idea but it is part of a high end amplifier so I like to avoid any unneccessary oscialltion, even the micro offers sleep mode.
just get a call and it seems the National 74F675A can solve teh issue many thanks Günther, I seem to be blind some time
Curious, is there any real advantage over chaining two 74HC595s?
