Anyone have an Eagle library for this part?
I really struggle creating  new ones.

here's one I put together for you
it's functional but not pretty

pretty follows shortly
(I think I got the pins right!)

slightly prettier
(big beast tho' ain't it!)
there are only 10 types of people
them that understands binary
and them that doesn't

Mike,
Thanks very much.  Can you send that to me directly please? robert@crossroadsfencing.com

Massimo made me a moderater yesterday, and now I cannot see any attachments. I've asked him to fix that, or unmake me a moderator.  Its like having blinders on all of a sudden.

Yes, it is a big part, expensive too. Kinda funny - won't take a lot of room on a schematic, but will on a board ;)

Hi
I am planning to connect Arduino to KingBrights 16 Segment Alphanumeric display.
I am planning to use Maxim's 6955 LED driver IC to driver the LEDs.
Could you suggest me the software libraries for this or any other driver which can connect
my Arduino uno to the LEDs.
Thanks

So you're going to wire it up like on page 37 or thereabouts?
http://datasheets.maxim-ic.com/en/ds/MAX6955.pdf

I am not aware of any library's (did you search the Playground?),
but as its just an I2C interface, where you send some set-up commands, and then send a command for the data you want displayed from Table 8 on page 21,
you could send over the data you want displayed using Wire.write commands, pull it from an array.

http://arduino.cc/en/Reference/Wire

Wire.write( display [ x ] );  // where x is the element from the array you want displayed

For example,
display[1] might contain 0x00000001 for the digit 1,
display[2] might contain 0x00000010 for the digit 2
etc for 3,4,5,6,7,8,9,
then 0x00001010 for A, etc for B,C,D,E,F,
then other letters/characters as you need.

The key is reading the datasheet and getting all the needed commands sent during void setup() so the part knows how its operating.
