Learn It

A seven segment display is a great example of how to take an existing concept and expand on it by simply duplicating it. The disply is made up of seven LEDs which each have to be controlled individualy. Anything sent to the display must follow the convention of displaying a number or letter or it will be confusing to users. Click on the hardware you are using to access the module.
