Title: Sampler for our next range of stencils - TTL chips
Post by: Paul Herber on September 29, 2010, 02:07:17 PM
Here's a free sampler of our next range of stencils, to be released in the near future.

Modified and updated sampler is available below!

Ok, I'm a dork--had to look up TTL because I was sure it didn't mean "Talk To you Later!"

So hey Google and Bing!

  Get your free sample Visio stencil of Transistor-Transistor Logic Visio shapes!

Thanks Paul!

 ;D Free chips! (or fries as they are known elsewhere)
There are many hundreds more to add yet, then there is the next range of shapes to be done, CD4000 series CMOS.

COOL...MOSFET's too maybe.

Thanks to the works of Mr. Jack Kilby aka Mr. Chips.  :)

We all stand on the shoulders of giants. Some of us can only reach from there up to the ear lobes though!
We already do some MOSFETs, the standard electronics shapes in http://www.paulherber.co.uk/visio-electronics/ (http://www.paulherber.co.uk/visio-electronics/) and various physical packages in http://www.paulherber.co.uk/visio-electronics-packages/ (http://www.paulherber.co.uk/visio-electronics-packages/)

So guys...you know what might be a killer app here?

Take this stencil with its shapes. Have each shape reference a SystemC (http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2Fs%3Fie%3DUTF8%26x%3D0%26ref_%3Dnb_sb_noss%26y%3D0%26field-keywords%3Dsystemc%26url%3Dsearch-alias%253Daps&tag=wanderkind-20&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=390957) module with behavior. Have the connection lines reference a SystemC interface module (could be a simple as name match up.)

Have the page/template have the overall SystemC framework (maybe a dashboard on simulation time length, start/stop, single step, etc)

From there you could provide all the system C source that could be plugged into in a SystemC simulator....or even reference/launch/include the simulator (and use text file for the output info.)

Make this a Visio add on...could post to SystemC org site as well as Visio tools....etc.

End result.....Visio as a GUI front end to SystemC (http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2Fs%3Fie%3DUTF8%26x%3D0%26ref_%3Dnb_sb_noss%26y%3D0%26field-keywords%3Dsystemc%26url%3Dsearch-alias%253Daps&tag=wanderkind-20&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=390957) simulator.

And of course from there...could get into something similar for system performance tools such as MVA
(very simple approach to measure system performance...good accuracy but none of the esoteric math purists love).

Just a thought

Hmmm, very interesting.

This product is now complete! 299 shapes in 24 stencils for the TTL series devices.

Man, you couldn't add one more shape to make it an even 300?! :)

All the useful ones are done, I suppose I might get a request to add one of the more esoteric devices ...
However, I'm now busy with the CD4000 CMOS shapes.

and updated the original horrible picture for a better one (I hope)!

In case anyone is interested these TTL stencils have been added to and now comprise 495 TTL devices in a total of 58 stencils.

Well, considering how old the TTL series are they are surprisingly popular so I've now released a new version with 624 shapes in 103 stencils.  That will probably be it for now.
