I am trying to buy a LM555CN-R online, however I can only find an LM555CN/NOPB. What are the differences, if any, on these chips?
The LM555CN-R is made by fairchild semiconductor
The LM555CN/NOPB is made by Texas instruments
The subtle difference is found in the datasheets e.g. power dissipation capabilities.
