So I got this cute little 74HC125N from phillips, with 14legs and all.
Nice text printed on top of it, proclaming its name and proud parents.
...but where the heck is the pin1 mark?
No circle on top, no dent in either end.
Production seems to be poor enough, that a small mark is unnoticeable to the molten plastic.
Data sheet : http://focus.ti.com/lit/ds/symli... (Page 13 shows the package).
Is there something obvious I am missing.
Let me know of a picture of the real thing can help, its pretty tiny though.
