I while a ago I saw a circuit in a datasheet that automatically cleared a 74xx164 shift register on power-up. I don't exactly remember which logic series it was (might have been LS or HC), and the reset circuit was basically just a capacitor and a resistor which generated a reset pulse when power was applied to the circuit. I don't remember if it contained any further components, and I cannot find that datasheet anymore (because I didn't really pay attention to the circuit at that time).
Does anyone here remember having seen that circuit, which datasheet it is in, or possibly even used it? I have looked at RC reset pulse generators on the web, but I'm not sure if they are the same thing I have seen in the datasheet.
I'm basically asking for advice on how to build a reset circuit for a 74xx164.
