Featuring eight 7-segment displays, the Serial 7-Seg 8-Digit Board is designed to provide
full control of the digit segments including decimal points. The board has a serial
input/output common-cathode display driverMAX7219 that interface microprocessors
to 7-segment numeric LED displays that allow display of 8 digits, bar-graph displays, or
64 individual LEDs. The Serial 7-Segment 8-Digit Board uses the industry standard
Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI) for communication with a host microcontroller. The
display driver is connected to multiple common-cathodes LED displays. The board has a
flat cable that ends with IDC10 female header connector that ensures easy connectivity
with all MikroElektronika development boards. This elongated board features a single
row with eight 7-segment LED displays. It is designed to use a 5V power supply only. It
offers an ideal way to enhance your design by adding eight 7-segment digits while
saving microcontroller pins and processing power. Also, these seven-segment LED
displays are brighter, more striking and offer a far viewing distance as well as a wider
viewing angle as compared to LCD displays.

Product Details

IC/Module: MAX7219 Serially Interfaced, 8-Digit LED Display Drivers

The MAX7219 is an integrated input/output common-cathode display driver that is
serially interfaced to connect microprocessor and 8-digit 7-segment of digital LED
display. The on-board components include a BCD code-B decoder, segment and digit
drivers, 8x8 static RAM used to store data, and multiplex scan circuitry. The 4-wire
serial interface allows connection with all common microprocessors.

Board Connections

The connection to a microcontroller system is accomplished using a 2x5-pin female
IDC10 connector on the end of the attached ribbon cable. The on-board DIP switches
enable user to configure which pins will be used for MOSI, SCK and CS lines.
