    I will be controlling the inputs of these XORs directly from a PIC
    output, both PIC and Logic powerd from the same regulated +5V. I have
    two choices:

    ST's Single XOR 74V1G86STR in a SOT23-5L


    Fairchilds Tinylogic UHS Single XOR NC7SZ86M5X in a SOT23-5L

    They are both astonishingly similar:
    both have a VIH minimum of .7 @ 5V
    both have a VIL maximum of .3 @ 5V

    The Tinylogic can provide up to -+ 24mA at output
    The ST can provide a minimum of 8 mA at output

    The XOR's output is directly connected to the two Reset pins on a 556.
    Hence when the XOR goes high, the 556 begins oscillating. When the XOR
    output goes low, the 556 goes back down to outputting 0V.

    Answer #1: either XOR will work.

    Answer #2: why dont you just do the xor in the software?

    PIC is pre-programmed, I do not have acess to PIC programming hardware.
