8-Bit Serial or Parallel-Input/Serial-Output Shift Register
High-Performance Silicon-Gate CMOS
The IN74HC166 is identical in pinout to the LS/ALS166. The device inputs are compatible with standard CMOS outputs; with pullup resistors, they are compatible with LS/ALSTTL outputs.
This device is a parallel-in or serial-in, serial-out shift register with gated clock inputs and an overriding clear input. The shift/load input establishes the parallel-in or serial-in mode. When high, this input enables the serial data input and couples the eight flip-flops for serial shifting with each clock pulse. Synchronous loading occurs on the next clock pulse when this is low and the parallel data inputs are enabled. Serial data flow is inhibited during parallel loading. Clocking is done on the low-to-high level edge of the clock pulse via a two input positive NOR gate, which permits one input to be used as a clock enable or clock inhibit function. Clocking is inhibited when either of the clock inputs are held high, holding either input low enables the other clock input. This will allow the system clock to be free running and the register stopped on command with the other clock input. A change from low-to-high on the clock inhibit input should only be done when the clock input is high. A buffered direct clear input overrides all other inputs, including the clock, andsets all flip-flop to zero.
