Teledyne Semi. obsolete IC info needed

Teledyne Semi. obsolete IC info needed

Teledyne Semi. obsolete IC info needed

I am looking for the data sheets and/or description of the pinouts for the following Teledyne Semiconductor digital devices  (late 60's to early 70's vintage):

 312CJ  ;   321CJ  ;   342CJ

Note:  I have previously searched many sources including www.freetradezone with no success.  If you suggest a source, please check it out first to be sure that the information that I am seeking is really available on that site.  Perhaps someone with an old copy of an IC Master might have this information.  Thanks in advance to anyone that can help me.

RE: Teledyne Semi. obsolete IC info needed

Do you have a working circuit you want to understand or are you trying to repair one ? do you  have schematics ?


RE: Teledyne Semi. obsolete IC info needed

Yes, I have a working circuit with schematics.  I have determined some of the circuitry based on the limited information available, but I still have questions on some connections.   Ultimately, I want to be able to replace these components in the future with available parts, if/when there is a failure.  These digital devices are similiar to, but are not an exact drop in for Motorola or TI devices back in the early 70's.   The pin outs are different and there are different and/or addtional connections.  I also looked at old copies of Electronics World, Popular Electronics, and other electronic magazines from the 70's to find if  these devices were utilized in other designs. I only found a couple of designs using Teledyne Semiconductor devices with limited usefulness, mostly TI and Mot. devices were utilized back then.

RE: Teledyne Semi. obsolete IC info needed

These devices must be RTL or DTL logic, so very simple.
I think you could replace them with 14/16 pin modules
based on surface mount parts.

It may be worth ro redesign the whole thing, today it must be much easier.


RE: Teledyne Semi. obsolete IC info needed

YES, replacing them with SMD modules would work well.

However, there are a couple of connections that I am trying to understand what they are for, and that is why I am trying to locate the pinouts or data sheets. These devices are located on 3 separate PC Boards, so redesigning them, although fun, is not what I have time for right now.  I would rather plug in an equivalent DIP module based on a surface mount device, if needed, in the existing board(s) for now.   Thanks nbucska for your thoughts on this problem.

White Paper - Effects of AIA Quick Guide to UL 489 or UL 1077
The function of a circuit breaker is to provide overload (thermal) and short-circuit (magnetic) protection to a circuit and its downstream components. A circuit breaker functions like an airbag in a car, protecting circuit components and people by tripping the circuit to interrupt the current flow if it detects a fault condition in the control system.

White Paper - Guide to Integrate Large-Format Additive
As with any new technology, getting into large-format 3D printing begins with investigation. The first question may be a simple one: what does “large-format” mean? For 3D printers, “large” is a relative term. Many extrusion-based (FFF) 3D printers are referred to as desktop machines, because they fit on table space. Some of these have very respectable build volumes – but when it comes to “large-format,” the machines will need their own dedicated floor space. Large-format 3D printers have significant build volumes and are most often found in professional settings, like manufacturing facilities and R&D centers. Download Now
