Though the Texas Instruments TIL308 appears externally identical to TIL306 shown above, internally it is quite different. The TIL308 lacks a built in decade counter, instead it accepts BCD hexidecimal data directly, a much more flexible arrangement. The TIL308 family was in fact both the forerunner and quickly superseded by the smaller and much more popular TIL311 BCD display shown below, and as such was limited to a relatively short product lifespan.
Special thanks to Dr. Bruce Jarnot for donating this rare display.
