Build your own simple IC tester applied to standard TTL or CMOS IC

Posted on Feb 6, 2014

What is mean logic-1 or logic-0 Logic-1 and logic-0 strongly connection between the state at one moment and one condition. Logic-1 means any states are in the condition of high voltage close to Vcc voltage, and logic-0 means any states that close to netral or ground voltage. Is that just right that. What about logic philosophy Logic philosophy

are like this, at one state, logic-0 cannot be made to be come logic-1 but logic-1 can be made to be logic-0. So if we want to exam the output of any devices (like and gate, or gate, not gate, buffer, counter, etc. ), the output logic must be keep to be logic-1, then the input logic can be applied and the output logic will be changed by the result. This project was dedicated to Paul Stenning at where the idea come when I saw his project. The project used a standard serial port type. I got quiet difficult to find this type IC. So I made the parallel port version. The concept is still the same. I changed only the part of serial to parallel convertion data. But my program still can used both hardware, serial port type or parallel port version. Certainly I didn`t try the serial version, because I didn`t build it, so if someone have found any bugs, please report it to me. I will fix it. Thanks to Paul because of his great thinking. I myself already tried a long time ago to make a device like this (simple ic-tester) to test any other ICs in my junk trash can. Thank you very much Paul`S ! Some part was changed to accomodate the parallel type port. The original clock circuit, RS-232 buffers and interface was omitted and replace with the parallel port interface and the flip-flop latch changed with 8-bit latch, so the circuit is more simpler. Other parts are still the same accept that the selector switch to select the IC power was...
