I know nothing about this in *particular*, these are just my to 2
The ULN2003 is a "7-bit 50V 500mA TTL-input NPN darlington driver"
i.e. suitable for converting microprocessor signals to levels and
currents suitable for Stepping Motors.
"EliteMT" appear to manufacture chiefly/only RAM - which is a little
puzzling as an "M11B416256A-35J" also sounds like a RAM chip to me.
Perhaps they also make some sort of microprocessor.
To me this sounds like a software only scanner. Is that possible?
