7 Segment Displays With An Arduino - Let's Make It - Episode 22 - Tech-Zen.tv

This week we take a look at using a shift register to control a single 7 Segment Display then we take a look at the Maxim 7219 chip that is designed specifically for controlling up to 8 7 Segment displays or an 8x8 LED matrix. Plus you can connect these chips serially like a shift register to add control of an additional 8 displays for each additional chip. 

 

Shift Registers And An Arduino - Let's Make It - Episode 17

This week we attach a shift register to an Arduino to demonstrate how to use a shift register to multiply the number of outputs that you can have on an Arduino.

This is our first week on using shift registers and we go over the basics of sending the serial data to the shift register from the Arduino.
