I have a SN74LS624 chip and I am trying to get it working on a simple breadboard with an oscilloscope.
I have read the datasheet here: http://www.ti.com/lit/ds/symlink/sn54ls629.pdf
I can not understand a few things from the data sheet:
1) The intro paragraph mentions you need an external capacitor. Where does this capacitor go exactly and how do you wire it up after determining the value for C
2) What are the pins CX1 and CX2 for? How should you connect them?
3) How to use the RNG and FREQ COUNT pins?
Can somebody please explain how I am supposed to determine the answers to these questions simply from reading the datasheet.
It appears to me that not enough information is in the datasheet to use this chip successfully by the enduser.
Thanks in advance.
