Re: IC Working

Download a Specification sheet of the IC, check the operating conditions (input vs output), limiting parametrs such as maximums and minimums. Hey, its fun working with spec sheets!

Added after 2 minutes:

Of course, dont just check it with yer eyes, use a multitester maybe or perhaps build a test circuit...

and beware of fake ICs!
