Re: Trying to bring back a AA501


I'll check tonight when I get back to the bench if there is voltage in the
socket with the ic removed. When I curve traced the outputs with the chip
out on a bread board referenced to ic ground point 1 2 and 4 showed a
diode. 3 showed nothing fully open circuit.

That happened here a few weeks ago. Fluke 8000A DMM. After a transient,
it would only display even digits. Turned out the 7447 display driver
developed an internal short on its 1's input. The MOS A/D chip was fine.

I am having trouble imagining how a 15V CMOS device could spontaneously
generate 5V on one of its outputs.... I can see ~0V, or ~15V, or even 7.5V,
but 5V is an odd value for a device that has no resistors in it.

Are you sure that it isn't being bullied around by whatever it is driving?
old style CMOS has very little drive capability.
