    I am doing a touch controlled switch that uses Flip-Flop and relay, pretty classic.

    Though, it does not specify and good relays, just get a 12V one.

    This is the one I am looking at, but the data sheet SUCKS! It does not just show the insides... what the pins control. SO Yeah, I need a place to start and wondering:
    1. How to wire up this thing
    2. How it works exactly, I know it works via logic, but what are the 3 leads for it, I want to turn on ALL my circuit board (this is just an addon) Is it 2 to 1 or 1 to 2?

    ANyways, let me know.

    Actually the datasheet is not that bad. There is a diagram that shows a basic diagram of the inside functions.

    Check out the diagram labeled "terminal assignments" at the bottom of page 4 of 12.

    The diagram is on the bottom of the 2nd page (labeled 4 of 12), under "Terminal Assignment".

    For example the coil is connected to pins 1 and 16.

    Oh ok holds on....
    edit - so it does not show all of the pins, and teh main functions of ALL of them -_-
    Maybe its just me, but I prefer a full explanation for all pins and what I can do with the chip.

    Just to make a new post, this is my guess:
    http://www.electronics-project-design.com/free-electronic-circuits.html
    12v to 1k resistor to pin 16 and then one just goes on.
    I am guessing 11 13 pair is open while 4 6 pair is closed.... vise-versa.
    9 is high when 11 13 pair is closed
    8 is high when 4 6 pair is closed

    it could be that the 2 pairs close at the same time but 9 or 8 is not-ed.
    I would just have to test it......

    Good guess?
    i still dont like it -_-


    edit - OH OH OH!!!!
    i zoomed in :p
    i see that I would use 4-6-8 or 11-13-9
    and it switches between 6-8 or 11-9
    Haha, my bad.
