Are these two inverters functionally different?


Recommended Posts


I'm making a MIDI thru box as per this schematic:


It uses the 74AC14PC hex inverter. What I could find with my local supplier, however, was only a 74AC14E, so I got that one just to try, but I now think these two are different products. However I'm not sure, and would like someone to confirm how it is.

74AC14E datasheet is here:


74AC14PC datasheet is here:


It would appear that the leg order of their inputs and outputs match, but their H and L (high and low..?) are reversed. Can someone confirm that the reversed H and L means that they're functionally different? And that it's no use trying to look for mistakes in my preliminary breadboard connections, because the problem is that I don't have the proper hex inverter.
