    I've recently come across a particular little IC and cannot figure out it's charactaristics. I've googled and googled and can't come across any kind of information or datasheet that pertains to it.
    The top reads -
    "New Bright
    T6627A 0408"
    No matter what I do, I can't find anything on it.
    Anyone out here have any other ideas?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Probably a custom IC. What's it out of?

    Doesn't seem to be any mass produced IC that I've found.

    How many pins does it have? Can you attach a photo?

    I dug it out of an old RC Car remote.
    As you can see, its a 16 pin dip. I looked up New Bright, but that was just a dead end.

    I've never heard of them either. Could have been a one run company that made a bunch of those cars with a custom IC and vanished. There seems to be a few of them around that can't be identified, or have companies that don't show up on a search.

    Did the IC fail, or were you attempting to make a different circuit with it?

    it didnt fail (that i know of) but i guess i was or was planning to use it in a different circuit. ever since i began my circuitry endeavors, i have always been on the lookout for electronics that are either broken or obsolete. i then strip them down to their bare parts and salvage what i can (caps, resistors, transistors, etc). i just found this one in an old rc car remot controller and thought it might be an interesting little thing. i guess i didnt figure how interesting (or uninteresting) it might be just trying to find out what it is and/or does.

    Try to trace the inputs, power and ground are usually easy to identify, then see what the other pins lead to, such as input buttons, antenna, etc, to get an idea of the function.

    You could also use the entire PC board for another project if you have a scope and are able to decode the output.

    Thats a great idea. I wish I would have thought of that. I sure hope I still have the pc board. I usually discard anything I don't want. I may have to rethink that.

    Startf - i think you might be misinformed.
    Ken - yea, i looked there. it was a dead end for me. i guess ill never know what it does.
