Pin 16 is connected to the power supply and Pin 8 is connected to the ground. Please link to us if you find the information helpful With advertising revenues falling despite increasing numbers of learners, we need your help to maintain and improve the course, which takes time, money and hard work. The following components are used. Be the first to review this product Email to a Friend. If we input a binary value into the data pins, we get the corresponding decimal digit equivalent shown out on the 7 segment display. Being that they are all connected to pull-down resistors, they are all initially LOW when unpressed.

How to Build a 4511 BCD to 7 Segment Decoder Circuit

The following components are used. Every LED has a maximum forward current and forward voltage. These data pins are referred to in the datasheet as D, B, C, and A.

This efficiency in hardware and PCB layout is what makes multiplexing so popular. Please link to us if you find the information helpful Those are symbol for LED, to represent the 7-segment display, 7-ssegment normal diodes.

Multiplexed 7-segment display Figure 4. Depending on the combination of pushbuttons being pressed determines the decimal digit that will be shown on the 7 segment LED display; this is summarized in the table above.


How to Build a BCD to 7 Segment Decoder Circuit

Using binary coded decimal BCDwe can display any 7-seyment digit on the 7 segment display from 0 to 9- using only 4 pins. And all the positive terminals are left alone.

The photo below shows the finished circuit. Add to Cart Details. So the highest value we can feed into iswhich is 9 in decimal.

Initially the display will show Zero, as buttons are connected to pull down resistors and gives LOW as output when no button is pressed. When pressed, it will go LOW tto turn off all the outputs. So, for example, if we want to show the decimal number 5, we give a value of to the DCBA data pins.

When LOW, this feature is not activated. Tto provides a little over 5ma for each segment. So we can see which combinations of pushbuttons turned on displays which decimal values.

Max quiescent current consumption: Otherwise, you would have to know which pins on the 7 segment display to turn on or off, making it much more complicated.

Note that the display decimal points are not controlled by the These 4 data pins are fed binary values.

What you need to do is select the appriate size resistor which will ensure you still have decent current goiing through the LED without burning it out. This mode is the mode we usually want it in for display purposes.


In this circuit, we will start the BCD to 7 segment display decoder with the most basic circuit. A fixed decimal point by wiring one of the DP pins to Vss. Already have an account? The pin-out for the is shown below, and the datasheet is available at here. Pin 4 ofwhich is blank input pin, used to turn off all the LEDs of the display, we are not using this pin in this circuit.

The decimal, if supplied, point requires an eight LED. Reducing controller pins Figure 5. Your email address will not be published. This will require one extra controller output pin per decimal point. We can refer each segment “a,b,c,d,e,f,g” and for dot character we will use “h”. However, if you want to use this feature in your circuit, you simply connect a pull-up resistor to this pin with a pushbutton.

For example, a on the matches to a on the 7 segment LED display, b matches with b, etc.
