In the first part, we’ll show how to simply use 3 GPIOs to control one seven-segment display by using a shift register. High speed is required, and Arduino only has one hardware based high speed pair, so I’d need to share the clock and data pins. That is, we serially send 8 bits of data, which represents the way we want to turn on the display, by one signal pin into the shift register and the register can output the corresponding data pattern to its 8 output pins at once parallel.

Can one chain of 74HC’s, and one chain of CDB’s share the same data and clock lines, using different “latch” pins to toggle between my input CDB reading and my output 74HC writing? I think this should work, but don’t yet have all the parts I need to prototype it.

This is built and working great. Anything else wrong with my plan?

I already have all that parts for an solution that does NOT work, and am trying to skip that “opps, this won’t work” step. This gives the fundamental concept about how to drive a seven-segment display and the idea about using a shift register as a serial-to-parallel converter.


Each “Display Board” has two 74HC’s to drive a set of displays, and is connected via ribbon cable to filethpe next identical board, which is the next display in a series of chained display boards.

Driving 7-segment Displays with 74HC – LinkIt for Arduino

It’s a common-anode four-digit seven-segment display. Sign up using Email and Password. I can confirm this works. When you say parallel chain of input shift registers, I assume you mean you’d multiplex the data signal rather than attach the CDB to the end of the 74HC registers at the data output of the registers? Email Required, but never shown.

Driving 7-segment Displays with 74HC595

I use a loop of the following to write out data to the 74HC shift registers. By using our site, you acknowledge that you have read and understand our Cookie PolicyPrivacy Policyand our Terms of Service.

And based 74hf595 this configuration, an example for how to extend it to control 4 seven-segment displays, by still using one shift register, is also introduced. For saving the pin number for controlling a seven-segment display, a shift register is used as a serial-to-parallel converter filetyype send signals to the display.

We use the sketch below to drive the display and it will show numbers counting increasingly as in the video:.

Depending on it’s a common-anode or a common-cathode module, its schematic can be represented as:. This saves lots of control pins needed and reduces the circuit layout complexity. If I may answer my own question. Ricardo 4, 14 37 You will just have to make sure that you keep in mind what bits are currently stored in the registers at all times so that you can make sure you latch at the proper time. Sign up using Facebook. Assuming the case where a four-digit display is needed, this setup means a total 32 8 pins x 4 digits pins are required to control the 74hf595.


So it’s worth understanding how to drive them correctly 74hc55 efficiently.

In the next section, we’ll show another technique to simply use one shift register to drive a four-digit seven-segment display module. Seven-segment displays are commonly used in different areas to display numerical information for user 74hv595. Therefore the display can show any desired pattern composed of all those 8 segments.

And we connect it with a 74HC and LinkIt as:.

As for the code, I’m not sure if the arduino environment will allow you to attach two devices to the same SPI object since it’ll have its own latch attached to the object but let filefype be known that any data going out a SPI data line will go to both of the devices, you’ll just have to latch them in an intelligent manner. In this tutorial, we introduced three ways to drive the seven-segment display:. Depending on it’s a common-anode or a common-cathode module, its schematic can be represented as: Comparing to the original 8-GPIO-for-one-digit method, now only 7 control pins instead of 32 from LinkIt are needed for driving 4 digits.

As a result, you can simply use one shift register to drive 4 digits. Though it’s intuitive, this circuit setup is very filftype. Learned from herefrom someone who has done this exact implementation before.
