Post HCTM6138 Arduino library for TM1638
[IMAGE TBA]



An Arduino library for interfacing tot he TM6138 LED and Keypad controller IC.

This library provides an easy way to interface tot he TM6138 IC from your Arduino giving full control over the drivers LED outputs and allowing for reading of the status of a connected keypad. The library has additional functions written specifically for our 8 digit seven segment display and keypad module (HCMODU0095) available from out online store here:

[LINK TBA]

You will need to download (please log in to download the library) and unzip this library to the Arduino development environments library area.

On Windows:
My Documents\Arduino\libraries\

On Mac:
Docments/Arduino/libraries/
or similarly for Linux.



Using the library


To use the library just include the HCTM1638.h header file and then create an instance of the library. E.g:

Code:
#include <HCTM1638.h>

HCTM1638 HCTM1638(STB, DIO, CLK);


Where:

STB is the digital pin used to interface to the TM1638's strobe pin.
DIO is the digital pin used to interface to the TM1638's data in/out pin.
CLKis the digital pin used to interface to the TM1638's clock pin.


The following functions are available with this library:

Code:
HCTM1638.Brightness(Value);

Sets the brightness (on time) of the LED outputs where:

Value is the brightness of all LED segments. Valid values are from 0 (min) to 8 (max).


Code:
HCTM1638.Disp_ON();

Turns the LED drivers on (default is on).


Code:
HCTM1638.Disp_OFF();

Turns the LED drivers off.

Code:
HCTM1638.SendByte(Data);

Sends one byte of data to the TM1638'. This function also toggles the strobe pin where:

Data is the data of type byte to be send to the TM1638.


Code:
HCTM1638.Clear();

Clears (writes 0x00) the display area causing all connected LED's to turn off.


Code:
HCTM1638.WriteDispMem(Address, Data);

Writes a byte of data to the display memory where:

Address is the memory location address. Valid values are from 0x00 to 0x0F

Data is the byte of data to be written.




HCMODU0095 specific functions:


Code:
HCTM1638.SetDigit(Digit, Value);

Writes a raw byte of data to one of the 8 seven segments on the TM1638 module allowing direct control over each LED segment where:

Digit is the one of the 8 digits on the display. Valid values are from 1 to 8.

Value is the raw byte value to write.



Code:
HCTM1638.SetLED(Led, Value);

Writes a raw byte of data to one of the 8 LEDs on the TM1638 module allowing direct control over LED where:

Led is which LED to control. Valid values are from 1 to 8.

Value is the raw byte value to write. A value of 0 will turn off the LED and a value of 1 will turn it on.



Code:
HCTM1638.ReadButtons();

Returns the current status of the 8 push buttons. The function returns a byte value representing the combined binary state of the 8 buttons where button S1 is the LSB, and button S8 is the MSB.



Quote:
State = HCTM1638.ButtonState(Button);

Returns the state of one of the 8 push buttons where:

Button is the button to check. Valid values are:

BUTTON1
BUTTON2
BUTTON3
BUTTON4
BUTTON5
BUTTON6
BUTTON7

Returns a Boolean value where false = not pressed and true = pressed



Code:
HCTM1638.print7Seg(Text, Offset, DP);

Prints an alphanumeric string of text to the TM1638 modules seven segment display where:

Text is a quoted string of text or null terminated character array of ASCII text to display.

Offset is the position on the display to start displaying the text from. Where 1 is the right most and 8 is the left most digit on the display. Text can also be positioned off screen. I.e. a value of 0 will position the text to the right of the display, a value > 8 will position the text to the left of the display.

DP is an optional decimal point specifier. If false any decimal points will use one digit of the display. If true decimal points will be displayed on the same digit as the previous alphanumeric character.




Code:
HCTM1638.print7Seg(Value, Offset, DecimalPlaces);

Prints a signed decimal number to the TM1638 modules seven segment display where:

Value is the signed floating point number to display

Offset is the position on the display to start displaying the value from. Where 1 is the right most and 8 is the left most digit on the display. Text can also be positioned off screen. I.e. a value of 0 will position the text to the right of the display, a value > 8 will position the text to the left of the display.

DecimalPlaces is optional and sets number of decimal places to display the number to.

This sketch demonstrates the use of the HCTM1638 library with the Hobby
Components TM1638 Serial Seven Segment Display & Keypad (HCMODU0095) to
display some text and numbers.

Connect the module to your Arduino as follows:

Module.....Arduino
VCC........+5V
GND........GND
STB........Digital pin 7
CLK........Digital pin 8
DIO........Digital pin 9
