Guess what IC I am! was created by Dante
If both inputs are at 0 volts I return a 1 on the seven-segment display, otherwise for any other inputs, I display a 0 on the seven-segment display!





What IC am I?! :woohoo:

Does IC stand for "ice cream"? If so, I'm going for rocky road.

Rocky road integrated circuits... they're carcinogenicly delicious?

I've forgotten almost everything I ever learned in high school electronics class. -_- I really need to brush up on that before I start screwing around with my Arduino board.

You have an Arduino board? Sweet! I've seen people do so many cool things with this. This one drove me a little crazy because I had never really played with ICs before (honestly, I've come to realize that my physics education was far more interested in teaching me about O-Scopes and analog devices), so I didn't know that I had to pull the ICs to ground if they weren't plugged in. Apparently, not plugged in =/= 0V and the circuit just starts picking up spurious voltages - including lighting up if I wave my hand in front of it (who knew I had such potential in life!). I'm thinking of trying out an Arduino or PIC in the future, probobly going to eventually play with both.

lol Neat. Yeah, I do have one. I wanted to make a drone based on a bug (what else?), but I just haven't gotten around to it. Part of that project idea also involved hooking it up to a Raspberry Pi, but I haven't picked one up yet.

you're a 7400, aka a NAND gate :P

Woohoo! I think we have a winner. Also, I just sliced open my dead TI-89 Titanium today and installed a new quad triple-A battery holder (the old one was a sad failure in product design). Now my calculator is covered in duct-tape, to hold in the new battery case (the old one removed via the help of a handy dremel tool). So now I have an incredibly ghetto calculator O_O. However, it now works and at the least they're now soldered in (whereas, before, the connection between the battery and the circuit was simply a loos piece of metal - unsoldered.

Alright now I have one for you:
I take 8 inputs,
if you give me 10101010 I give you back 01010110,
if you give me 11111111 i give you 00000001,
if you give me 11110000 i give you 00010000
what am I? (hint I'm not an IC module)

Looking like a two's complement to me...

Ruh roh. hmm... okay. :)

I take a character and spit it out a serial port and on the other end of the serial connection you see a "p" then I operate on it and spit it out a serial port again, this time you see an "8". What operation did I perform on the character?
