IC: 8-bit Shift Registers with output latches

Serial In/Parallel Out. 16 PIN DIP. Can drive an unlimited number of outputs using only 3 microcontroller pins. Great for smaller mi crocontrollers and for reducing wiring clutter on larger clocks. Run only 3 wires over your entire PCB, a bus type arrangement, to c ontrol all tubes and other outputs (blinking neon colons for example).

A great introduction to Shift Registers is available on the following Fighting Robots Technical Guide website here: Using shift registers to extend microcontroller I/O
