Topic: 6 digit 7 Segment display - TPIC6B595 schematic component? (Read 6506 times) previous topic - next topic

I've been considering getting your board.  Then I was thinking, if I'm going to make boards for the 7 segment LED displays, would it be ok to put the 595 on those boards.  That way I'm only running 3 wires instead of 8.  Just wondering what the pros/cons are, besides the obvious of 3 wires vs. 8 wires  (plus pos. & neg.)

I'm playing around with Eagle right now (learning that software) so thoughts like this are bouncing around in my head.
