I just noticed your e-mail on the web. I wanted to inform you that Innocor
manufactures a direct, drop-in replacement for the TIL311 (INL0397-1)
featuring less power, brighter LEDs, lower cost and higher reliability.

Pls find the link to our datasheet.

If you have any requirements, pls let me know.

   The 306/307s also have built in BCD decoders. I've been trying to find a
data sheet on the 311 so that I can see what the difference is between it
and the 306/307.
