COP472N-3

Hello,
Can someone please tell me if it’s possible to interface the COP472N-3 to the arduino and if so can you please tell me how…

Many thanks

Looks like you can use SPI or shiftOut() to transfer data.

Hi johnwasser,
Many thanks for the fast replay I have that datasheet the problem is that I can’t figure out which data I have to send, and how to switch on the digits…

Thanks again
Carmel

You set the Chip Select to LOW and shift out FIVE bytes. The first FOUR bytes control the 7 segments and decimal point of the four digits of the display. The fifth byte controls a ninth segment of the displays and some control bits.

Read the datasheet until you understand.

Hi,
I’ll give it a try!!!!.
Many thanks
