Driving a gas discharge readout. See the datasheet for more info. Posted by B-Sparkes in forum: Mar 30, 6. These multi-part series may be just what you need! BCD to seven segment common anode display Posted by cdennis in forum: A PWM pulse-width modulated signal can be applied to this pin to provided varying brightnesses to the LED display being driven, allowing user control of LED dimming for applications such as power saving by decreasing the brightness during times of low ambient light.

A microcontroller can be programmed to perform the binary to decimal conversion and then use a look-up chart to perform the segment conversion. A line selector an additional output line on the microcontroller could bcc which chip to target and cycle through the set of displays to produce the overall numeric output. Mar 30, 2. Driving a gas discharge readout.

Posted by 7-seegment in forum: Mar 31, 9. Common cathodemeaning the negative connection of all of the LEDs is tied together. In this method, the microcontroller would send BCD binary coded decimal on 4 output pins to the chips.

The B has four input control terminals, and three auxiliary output terminals. Beware the Patent Troll Patent trolls wreak havoc on intellectual property and could be the reason your design never makes it to market.


Yes, my password is: The IC does not incorporate a data latch and has no facility for ripple blanking. To build a simple digital counter, consider using the decade counter.

BCD to seven segment common anode display Posted by cdennis in forum: Figure 3 shows how to connect the ripple-blanking terminals to give leading zero suppression on 7-segmeng first three digits of a four-digit display.

If trailing-zero suppression is required, the direction of ripple-blanking feedback must be reversed with the RBI terminal of the LSD grounded and its RBO terminal wired to the RBI terminal of the next least-significant stage, and so on.

Apr 5, 18, 3, Jan 18, 1. When the not-LATCH terminal is pulled low, the BCD input signals that are present at the moment of transition are latched into memory and fed in decoded form to the seven-segment outputs until the not-LATCH pin returns to the high state.

Using Seven-Segment Displays — Part 2

What am I doing wrong any help would be greatly appreciated Thanks. This procedure is repeated on all except the LSD, which does not require zero suppression.

Mar 30, 3. I’ve connected a to a common cathode seven segment display. Way of using the B to drive a common-cathode or b common-anode seven-segment LED displays. Mar 31, 8.


74LS48 BCD to 7-segment Decoder Driver IC

Driving a low-brightness fluorescent readout. Method of applying leading-zero suppression to the first three digits of a four-digit display using 74LS47 ICs.

You May Also Like: The 7-sgement cathode goes to ground, the segments go to the outputs of the Shown above, is an example application of the 74LS48 7-seg decoder circuit.

The CO signal is a symmetrical square- wave at one-tenth of the CLK input frequency, and is useful in cascading B counters. A high output is intended to light the segment.

Mar 31, Mar 30, 5. This feature enables the IC to act as a universal unit that can drive common-cathode or common-anode LED or liquid-crystal seven-segment displays with equal ease, as shown in Figures 10 to The opening episode of this special feature explained the basic operating and usage principles of seven-segment alphanumeric displays.

Figures 6, 7and 8 show how to modify the above circuit to drive LED common-anode displays, gas discharge displays, and low-brightness fluorescent displays, respectively.
