    Hi friends,

    I planned to make a LED clock. The searched the net and found this one very interesting to do. Please follow the link below,

    http://www.dos4ever.com/ledklok/ledklok.html

    But while procuring the materials required, I was unable to get the 74hc563 which is used for this project. Later, I got 74hc373 as substitute for 74hc563. From the datasheets I understood that I can use 74hc373 instead of 74hc563. But still I have doubt. I require your help my dear frinds. Can I use 74hc373 instead of 74hc563 ? For more details check the above link.

    You could use a 74xx540 after any non inverting octal latch to produce the same function as the 74hc563. As long as you use a prototype board or roll out your own PCB. The result should be the same

    74hc373 has different pinout and is not inverting. (1.) Is there any other IC that I can use instead of 74hc563 that has similar pinout, logic and ,of course, is inverting. Because I want to complete this project. (2.) What if I connect the pins with certain alterations. For example, if a connection is made in pin number 9 in 74hc563 in original project, the same pin may be pin number 18 in 74hc373, in this case, can I connect the same wire that has to be connected in pin number 9 of 74hc563 to pin number 18 of 74hc373 which has same potential (output) as per datasheets. Will this work properly?

    Unless you have a magic wand I would say no ;) Have you looked at other variants of the 74hc563. I know it is a 74ls563 type IC. Else as I said place any inverter after the 74hc373 chip. And you will get the same function.

    Ok what type of inverter can I use for this? Can you please specify it with details?

    At least I can try. From the top of head you may use two 74xx04 or a 74xx540. 74hc04 or 74hc540 will both work. Which one of these can you get hold on. I would have used the 74xx540 since all the inputs are on one side of the chip. And the outputs are on the opposite side
