Mini Running Text Display
This charming little circuit is a genuine four-digit running-text display, complete with a Christmas / New Year’s greeting. Naturally, any competent programmer can easily arrange to have a different text scroll across the display. The associated software, including the source code, can be downloaded from the Free Downloads section of our website or obtained from Readers Services on diskette (order number 020365-11).As can be seen from the schematic, the hardware consists of little more than an AT90S1200 microcontroller, a 4-digit LED display and a 5-V voltage regulator.
