There are lots of BCD to 7-segment decoder/driver chips. 7447 and
CD4511 come to mind. Search Digikey and Mouser for part numbers.

TIL311, one of my favorite parts from the days when I did all designs
in TTL. It includes latch, decoder, drivers, and LEDS, and displays 0-
F from 4-bit input and has right and left decimal points as well. Now
made by Taos and available from Mouser.

A TIL-311 looks really great, but it's very expensive. Mouser's price
on the TIL311 is $26.82 (qty 1-9) and$23.47 (qty 10-24). Ouch!

They were equivalently expensive back when we used them in the 80's
(about $7 as I recall). But since they included the leds, current limit resistors, latch and decoder in the space of a DIP package, they were a bargain in some applications.

An eight bit binary number ranges from 0 to 255 (decimal) so you will need three 7-segment diplays to show the eight bits number in BCD. There are some solutions but as you didn't give any constraints it's hard to tell which one will suit you. If you need one off and space is not a problem, a quick and dirty solution is programming three old EPROMs like the infamous 2764. As maybe the EPROMs cannot provide enough power to drive the LEDs of the display you may have to put drivers or transistors between the EPROMs and the displays. Likewise you can use GALs although you may run into a fitting problem. You can go for a two stage solution. Use EPROMs or GALs to convert from binary to BCD and standard BCD to 7-segment decoders/drivers, like the CD4511, to convert BCD to display. You can program a PIC16F870 or similar for the conversion and multiplexing of the three displays. The biggest solution I can think about is a PC with an EPP or other bidirectional parallel port. Read the eight bits from the port and display the number on the screen. An old DOS machine and one line in GWBASIC will do the trick. (You can use a mainframe as well but I expect real space and power problems in that case.) petrus bitbyter R #### Rich Grise Jan 1, 1970 0 A TIL-311 looks really great, but it's very expensive.

And they're hex displays, i.e. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 a b c d e f.

I've already given him (or her or it) the answer - OP needs some way
to get BCD out of binary, and OP'll need 3 digits of display, from
000 to 255.

But posting the same message seventeen times in two days shows the
guy really has no clue in the first place. What's up with these google
groupies? Do they think they can just post their homework questions
and have answers magically appear on their desk?

Feh.
