Plenty of TIL311 ICs on hand (one of my favorites!), but a bit different
from the 306/307s you seek.
I have the 311 datasheets if you care to investigate the necessary
'tanslation' work.

   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.
