Description


The HCOPTO0012 & HCOPTO0013 are 1 and 4 digit seven segment display modules ideally suited for use with various microcontrollers such a Pic, Atmel AVR, and Arduino products.

The 1 digit module is a CL5611AH common cathode type display
The 4 digit module is a 5641AS common cathode type display

This is an example of how to use the 7 segment LED displays found within
our product range. This sketch is designed to work with both the single 
and four digit displays but can also work with a combination of single
digit displays stacked together.

When connecting your LED display to your arduino board, make sure that you 
have correctly identified the version of display and understood its pinout 
as an incorrect connection to your Arduino board can result in permanant
damage to both your LED display and your Arduino. Never connect the annode
and cathode of any of the LED segments across the GPIO's of your Arduino 
without a current limiting resistor in series.

PIN  DESCRIPTION      ARDUINO PIN

1    Segment E        D2 (VIA 220R resistor)
2    Segment D        D3 (VIA 220R resistor)
3    Segment DP       D4 (VIA 220R resistor)
4    Segment C        D5 (VIA 220R resistor)
5    Segment G        D6 (VIA 220R resistor)
6    Digit 1 Select   D7
7    Segment B        A0 (VIA 220R resistor)
10   Segment F        A3 (VIA 220R resistor)
11   Segment A        A4 (VIA 220R resistor)


4 DIGIT MODULE CONNECTIONS (CAI5416 & 5641xx)

PIN  DESCRIPTION      ARDUINO PIN

1    Segment E        D2 (VIA 220R resistor)
2    Segment D        D3 (VIA 220R resistor)
3    Segment DP       D4 (VIA 220R resistor)
4    Segment C        D5 (VIA 220R resistor)
5    Segment G        D6 (VIA 220R resistor)
6    Digit 1 Select   D7
7    Segment B        A0 (VIA 220R resistor)
8    Digit 2 Select   A1
9    Digit 3 Select   A2
10   Segment F        A3 (VIA 220R resistor)
11   Segment A        A4 (VIA 220R resistor)
12   Digit 4 Select   D8

ALL SEGMENT PINS MUST BE CONNECTED TO THE ARDUINO GPIO VIA 220R
RESISTORS OTHERWISE YOU MAY RISK DAMAGING THE MODULE AND YOUR ARDUINO.


To initilise the library include the following line:

HC7Segment HC7Segment(Number_Of_Digits, Digit_Select_State);

Where Number_Of_Digits is the number of digits your 7 segment display has 
(e.g. 1, 2, 3, or 4) and Digit_Select_State is the logic level required on 
each of the digit select pins of the module to make the module illuminate 
(e.g. HIGH For common annode displays or LOW for common cathode displays). 
You cannot damage your module by selecting the wrong Digit_Select_State 
(so long as you have connected your module correctly) but your display 
will not illuminate.


To output a number to the display you must continually run the following
function in a loop or via a timer interrupt:

HC7Segment.vDisplay_Number(Number, Decimal_Point);

Where Number is the number (of type int) to be displayed and Decimal point
is the optional position of the decimal point.

Re: 7 segment display modules (HCOPTO0012 & HCOPTO0013)

Post by Steve » Thu Jul 15, 2021 9:22 pm

Hi,
Is the HCOPTO0013 common anode or common cathode? The diagrams show both, 5641xx (CC) and CAI-541 (CA), but the description does not say which it is.

Thanks,

Steve

Thanks for pointing this oversight out! The 4 digit modules are 5641AS which is the common cathode type. I'll get the description updated to reflect this.
