    There 3 IC's are the same IC.it's a BCD to hexadecimal decoder that drives a common cathode.Here is the datasheet incase u need it.
    http://pdf1.alldatasheet.com/datasheet-pdf/view/51130/FAIRCHILD/DM9370/+_1Q42UwYhRDpKxHeIThwhz+/datasheet.pdf
    Now since this IC is obsolete(discontinued) and can rarely be found and a bit expensive. Can someone recommend me any alternative other than the MC14495 or a PIC or anything programmed since I need an IC
    I need something fresh and new to the market.
    Thanks

    Check out THIS thread from the forum here.
    There are two or three possibilities.

    First, according to all the data sheets I found, the ICs you listed are BCD to 7 Segment decoder/latch/drivers, not Hexadecimal decoders. In most cases the 7 segment decoder ICs available now will require pin reassignment, but will work. Have you tried a GOOGLE search for "bcd to 7 segment decoder"?
