We have lots of electronics components, many of which are unsorted. These are my notes on identifying components.

When we find a component and need to identify it there are many subtleties and it doesn't help that these things are tiny!

Integrated Circuits (ICs)

Problem: I have a bunch of seemingly standard ICs with similar-sounding names. What do the extra letters mean?

On the Texas Instruments website I found a list of the terms they use: -

  • ABT - Advanced BiCMOS Technology
  • ABTE - Advanced BiCMOS Technology / Enhanced Transceiver Logic
