The Panasonic 1381x voltage trigger detects preset voltage levels depending on the flavour you select. These are the heart of many solarengine circuits.
This very configurable voltage monitor chip offers more flexibility than the 1381 series of detectors, at more complexity of setup.
This Hex inverter chip with Schmidt trigger inputs is often used for Microcore-style circuits.
The 74HC86 is a high-speed Si-gate CMOS device that provides the EXCLUSIVE-OR function. We use this chip in our new ScoutWalker III kit.
1-of-4 decoder chip, good for twisting into motor h-bridge controllers or drivers
The 74AC240 is an octal (8-channel) inverter buffer chip, or better known as The Bicore IC.
This 74HCT240 octal (8 channel) inverter chip is more power efficient than the AC series, but can't drive as heavy loads. This makes it more suitable for solar BEAM applications.
The 74AC245 is an octal (8 channel) buffer chip that simply strengthens the current output of a signal. Great for small-motor driving!
The LM339 is very similar to the LM324 but with open collector outputs.
The LM393 is a dual-comparator chip that is the heart of the popular "Sandwich bot" project in the book "Robot Building for Beginners"
