    Years ago I took several electronics courses in college. For the courses one of the books we used had the descriptions and specs of individual integrated circuits. We referenced the book to learn about the ICs we were using in our projects.

    Does anyone know the name of this book?

    I think it was a yellow and blue book.

    Thanks

    Any CMOS or TTL logic manual would have such information. I've got then by Signetics, TI, and Motorola. Unless you had analog functions in mind.....

    If I remember correctly yellow and blue are the colors that TI used in their old logic books. Can't really get them anymore.

    Thanks for the info guys. I've been hunting around and think the book was the TTL data book or something similar.

    One of the courses we used it in was analog electronics.

    If the books are not available anymore what do people do to identify ICs and get the specs? Is it all online now?

    Thanks

    I usually just type the part numbers into google. Most of the time, the parts pop up, along with various vendors and info.

    There are very few components whose datasheets/specs you won't find on http://alldatasheet.com/

    I get almost all my datasheets from there with some rare exceptions. There are other sites, but this works best in my opinion.

    I usually go to digikey.com and type in the part number.

    I have books from the 1970's that contain data on obsolete parts, (and parts that are still in production). It might all be on the internet now, and it might not. I won't give up my old books until I die.
