Hi Paul, OK thanks for the info. Yes it might be good to offer them direct, or at least put a note on the 8x8 board that the DIY sourcing may be difficult. I'll take you up on that later and shoot you an email if it's not an order option... I have a few projects to finish first before I aim to build...

pin compatible replacement for STP16C596?

Hello,

Does anyone know of a pin compatible replacement for the STP16C596 which is specified for this project?

If not, next best suggestion is what?


I ordered the 8x8 LED board PCB only, and not checking the project's BOM first is my fault. I will learn *grin*.

thanks,
Scott
