Content for 74HC4511


The 74HC4511; 74HCT4511 is a BCD to 7-segment latch/decoder/driver with four address inputs (A, B, C, D), a latch enable input (LE), a ripple blanking input (BI), a lamp test input (LT), and seven segment outputs (a to g). When LE is LOW, the state of the segment outputs (a to g) is determined by the data on A to D. When LE goes HIGH, the last data present on A to D are stored in the latches and the segment outputs remain stable. When LT is LOW, all the segment outputs are HIGH independent of all other input conditions. With LT HIGH, a LOW on BI forces all segment outputs LOW. The inputs LT and BI do not affect the latch circuit. Inputs include clamp diodes. This enables the use of current limiting resistors to interface inputs to voltages in excess of VCC.

A digital quartz clock from scratch

“After 20+ years of programming, I wanted to get some understanding of the electronics that make my career possible. I had built the basic individual logic gates with transistors on a breadboard, but to build anything meaningful I needed loads …

Galileo 2 driving MCP23017 and 74HC4511 Digit Displays

“Using the Galileo II and ANSI C, demonstrate how to drive the MCP23017 IO Expanders 16 general purpose outputs, themselves driving four 74HC4511 seven segment display drivers. The 74HC4511 accepts as inputs a 4 bit binary encoded decimal value. This …
