I wanted to make some bar-graph displays, and I have a small tray of various 10-segment bar graph led's I'd like to use. Unfortunately, I have 74hc164 shift register, handles 8 pins. I have a 16 channel 74hc4067, which would leave me 6 pins to do whatever with - except I can't do (2) 10 segment displays with the 16-mux.
I feel like this is the trick at the store where they sell you pack of 10 hot dogs, and 8 rolls....
Yes I can buy 8-segment graph displays. If anyone's shopped for them - you already know it's like (10) 10 segment graphs for $12 OR I could buy (2) 8 segment graphs for $12.
Do they make 10 segment shift registers or mux or 20 segment ones?
