I wanna use CD4094 shift register in my circuit. But when i trigger ( strobe, data & clk) the chip with 5V (mC) while its supply voltage is 12V it doesn't work. Is it necessary to use both supply and triggers at the same voltage level ? It works fine when i do so. I'm selected this chip as i wanna drive my loads in 12volts. Should i have to use some voltage steppers like MOSFET and all ? isn't there any other way around ? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you all in advance.
