This is my first time using diptrace and I am struggling to find any components I need.

I am using a 18M2 PICAXE microcontroller. This wasn't available under the pickaxe library but as its a new part i assumed it was just out of date and so i have created my own.

I then need a 4017B decade counter. This should be under Texas Instruments but i cannot find it. Nor can i find the 4028B BCD to Decimal Decoder which should be under NXP. Why can I not find these?!

Both HEF4017BT and HEF4028BT could be found under Philips-NXP.

These are the parts I'm looking for, thanks.

Can you explain the 'HEF' and the additional 'T / P' ? previously I've just called these parts '4017B Decade counter'?

HEF is made by NXP and HCF is made by ST micro. T/P usually refers to package identifier (SOIC,DIP and etc).

Use * as a wildcard when searching for components. For example, I searched for parts using *4017*. This returned 49 hits. Most were counters, a few were not. You could probably refine this search. Hope this helps.
