Finicky ULN2803 Darlington driver
October 26, 2008
So I've been using the darlington driver in the 28x1 starter kit, which has been quite nice. When I decided to build my own circuit, I moved the chip to my new board, with the EXACT same vcc and ground hookups, and get nothing.
What I'm curious about is does this chip's leads need to be all connected? I just have ground, vcc, input 1, and output 1 hooked up. Like a chip that even if you only use one pin, the other need to be connected to something to tie it down to a high or low output?
My head hurts from trying to figure this out. Any help would be appreciated!
