I'm currently working on a project where I'm running out of pins on a PIC. This is one of the bigger PICS so I am unable to expand on the processor. Basically I need to be able to signal 8 outputs from a single pin on the PIC. This is what I need in a nutshell:
Pulse on a single pin from the PIC to set a number of outputs (upto 8+) Once set pulse another pin to enable the selected outputs. Have the ability to reset the chip. Be able to set all 8 (or more) outputs indipendantely.
Does anyone know of such a chip?
Please excuse my lack of electronics speak. I'm new to electronics!
