    Driving multiple Seven Segment Displays - The PSoC Way!

    gautam.das.g

      Driving six 7-segment displays using PSoC to display numbers was a requirement which I came across.

         

      This function was a jsut small portion of several other tasks which PSoC was performing. So, it was important to reduce the onus on the CPU from this task.

         

      The programmable hardware available in PSoC can be put to best use in such a scenario.

         

      The solution was to build a custom component to do the house keeping task of refreshing the 7-segment displays.

         

      The schematic of the custom component is shown below:
