Re: IC Family?
- BillW answered this question pretty thoroughly. I have a few more
- HC means less power used, but less current output (good for solar
and if you have a seperate motor driver)
- AC means more power used, more power output (good for Bicore /
motor driver on a single chip)
- Multiple Bicores on a single HC tend to synchronize to each other
(you can bypass this effect with a dithering Bicore)
- For packing on the Bicores onto a single chip, use an AC
- AC/HC 240's trigger at half of Vcc
- ACT/HCT trigger at ~1.6V, important for suspended Bicores, useful
in Servocores where you need fast, constant switching

I've seen that he also uses some ''weird'' size
Panasonic SolarCells. I've seen these Cells also on
other webpages. Does anyone know were can I buy them?
