    Hello Everyone,

    I was wondering if anyone could give me some ideas on the following:

    I have a digital inputs (bits) which will be used to control different devices and so I would like to be able to select the device using some sort of digital switch (?). Is there a digital IC that can take 8 inputs and then re-route to different outputs based on selector pins?

    Thanks in advance!

    a small ROM makes a good decoder. Your address (inputs) would determine your ouputs (data). Newer flash memories make it easy to reprogram as required.

    How many different outputs are you thinking of?
