Thanks for the links Chris, pretty much exactly what I wanted I searched google for variations of "semiconductor packages" and "ic packages", looks like I should have used outlines instead of packages. As for digikey, I found using their links cumbersome. Basically I had to narrow down their search to a package I wasn't sure what it was before I could tell if it was what I wanted or not.Russlk said:To find the data sheet from the digi-Key website, once you find the part, click on the part number, then down where it says catalog/datasheet, click on the part number again, then click on the datasheet
Informative websites! thanks!This info is available from a variety of sources. I ahve listed some good ones below, and I have also provided a link to the catalog order page on NTE's website. Their catalog (as would any good semi catalog) gives exellent information regarding case types, dimensions, and outlines.
