    It is really surprising to me the very simple hex Low power Schottky inverter in a DIP package is so popular.

    How about a summary of what each one is?

    Hitachi – HD74LS04P : Hex inverters. Common digital logic chip.

    Skyworks Solutions – SKY77340-13 : Power Amplifier Module for Quad-Band GSM / EDGE. Used in the Apple iPhone.

    Texas Instruments – SN74LS74AN : Dual D-Type positive edge-triggered flip-flops with preset and clear. Common digital logic chip.

    Atmel – ATMEGA168-20PU : 8-bit Microcontroller with 16K Bytes In-System Programmable Flash. Popular microcontroller, used in the Arduino.

    PanaVise – 201 : “Panavise Jr.” small bench-mountable vise for holding circuit boards etc. Popular with electronics hobbyists.

    Sanyo – STK392-150 : 3-Channel convergence correction circuit (current amplifier). This part is used to fix many rear view projection TVs.

    AVX – TAJA105K016R : 1.0uF, 16V tantalum capacitor, surface mount.

    Hitachi – HD44780A00 : Dot Matrix Liquid Crystal Display Controller/Driver. De facto industry standard LCD driver chip.

    NEC – 2501 : High isolation voltage single transistor type multi photocoupler. Used in power supplies, telephony equipment, and MIDI devices, among others.

    Intel® 82371EB (PIIX4E) : Southbridge (IO Controller) chip for Pentium processors. : “Octopart is a search engine for electronic parts.”

    Wonder what the tantalum cap is from, google doesn’t return any interesting results as to why it is a popular part.

    My guess would be like the Sanyo chip mentioned above, used for repairs on older equipment.

  6. Pierce Nichols says:

    Tantalum caps are really, really common. 1 uF is a common filter/decoupling cap size called out in datasheets of various parts, so it’s not hugely surprising to see it.
