New! 7-segment LED display interfacing with microcontroller
Hi all,

I am new to this controller,I want to interface the 7 segment LED(common anode) with P89LPC932,i have to display 0 to 999 on display.I am using 3 seven segment LED displays.Are their any sample programe for this?

Thanks n regards

To Reinhard:
1) are you sure Kanaka understands German
2) I found no LED 'example'

To Kanaka:
Everybody and his brother is going to come out of the woodwork with multiplexed solutions. If your LEDs are less than 20mA per segment a string of 3 shift registers provide a simpler and cheaper solution.

There is an example with the title:
"SAA1064 4-digit LED-driver with I²C-bus interface"

Well, he may not understand German, but still the program might help him to think about his own problem.

Hi,

I am Miss bye the way. I do not understand
German. But "Danke (dahn'-kuh);" for your concern..
I am already using a microcontroller for a different purpose and along with that i want to use 7segment LED Display - 3nos, so the document doesnt help me..

Thanks and regards,

Ms. Kanaka

You are using a uC with hardware IIC. Philips have LED drivers that run off the IIC bus.

How is the question. By transistors? Logic chips? a display driver?

Once you choose the method, the code will follow.

I must add one more decision to be made
How is the question. By transistors? Logic chips? a display driver?, multiplexed or not

Once you choose the method, the code will follow.


one added bit: if your LED segements use less than, say, 20 mA, the multiplexing typically is the wrong choice (more complicated, more expensive).
