Easiest way to wire 7-segments displays

Recommended Posts

What's your experience about wiring 7-segments Display ?I've FSBUS and have to wire the 5 7-segment. Joining the different segment together to the cable.That's quite difficult. The easiest way would be to make own PCB ...But I've tried with special vero-wire with the isolate who get wawy by about 400

Yeah cool and nice but whatever .. not my kind of 7 segments ...It would be VERY neet if someone would focus on making PCB's for these things. And make different version PCB's per different size / brand display.

Insane, but a friend was very handy wiht that stuff, I didnt do it myself.//Tuomas

I'm trying to wire this part up now, but I can't work out what pins are going to what wires etc.Are you able to provide this information - I posted a message asking if anyone had made a pcb, or at least a schematic but I've had no replies.Would really love to get a display working - Espeically as it's a bit pointless building something without them

I have designed 3 types of PCB's for the Kingsbright 10mm displays.These PCB's are made such that it is easy to wire all numbers that are static loose from your interface. So e.g. you will power the leds from the leading "1" from the com, nav etc directly from a 5V power source with resistor and trimmer.I have a design for the COM & NAV & ADF which is 1 print with 10 segments on it. So both active & standby on 1 print.Then for the Autopilot I have 1 with the 2 rightmost digits loose from the interface (so hard wired to show "0")And I have one for the XPDR.If anyone can make these .. that would be awesome.I need 1 XPDR-type, 1 AP-Alt-type and 6 of those double radio-types.If anyone is interested in the designs I made with Eagle .. feel free to let me know.
