Recommended Posts

Hello guysI was looking at the display controller schematics, from FSBUS, and should I connect the PIC pins to both cathode display pins or just one of them? Or it doesn't matter?Thanks a lotPaulo

Paulo,If you're referring to the common cathode pins on a 7-segment display, it will work with either one connected. Using both is more conservative. The common connection has to handle the total current through all the segments. Using both shares the load.Mikewww.mikesflightdeck.com

I really have no idea what you should do. But would it not be easier to download the PCB layout and etch the board? I have done all of the boards and they come out great done with the pre-sensitized method.
