7-segment Display IC
The EDE707 from E-Lab Digital Engineering (www.elabinc.com) has been designed to drive a maximum of eight 7-segment displays, using only four data lines and a clock signal. The IC takes care of the display multiplexing, leading zero suppression, can function as a counter and can display the complete hexadecimal character set (0 to 9, A to F). It is suitable for use with either common anode or common cathode displays.
