I think you mean DP8303 / DP8308? Both of these are 20-pin DIL 8-bit
bidirectional transceivers; the DP8303 is inverting and the DP8308 is
non-inverting. In both cases, the A port is pins 1-8, and the
corresponding B port pins are 19-12.

On the DP8303 (and DP8304, which is the non-invering equivalent) Chip
Disable (active high to disable) is pin 9; pin 11 is Transmit/-Receive;
"transmit" (pin 11 high) means A is input and B is output.

On the DP8308 (and DP8307, the inverting equivalent), pin 9 is
-Transmit and 11 is -Receive (both active low).

On all of them, port A can sink up to 16mA and port B can sink up to

The DP7303/4/7/8 devices are extended-temperature range versions of
