Here’s an old but quite clever approach app note from Microchip on utilizing microcontroller I/O’s to handle multiple display and switches with only few pins.

This application note demonstrates the capability of the PIC16C71 and has been broken down into four subsections:
• Multiplexing Four 7-Segment LED Displays
• Multiplexing Four 7-Segment LED Displays and Scanning a 4×4 Keypad
• Multiplexing Four 7-Segment LED Displays and the A/D Channel 0
• Multiplexing Four 7-Segment LED Displays with a 4×4 Keypad and 4 A/D Channels

    I think this is good idea. Some days ago I’m just thinking about do same thing with LCD displays.

  • Drone: So these go for around $330 USD and NO published calibration procedure online or otherwise? Given what's inside - I don't think I'll be considering...
  • Pekka Akselin: This is ridiculous!? :-) We are back at 256(!) byte EPROMs that needed multiple, a handful, of voltages to run! :-(
  • KH: Let's try a back-of-envelope calc balancing energies. From MCP1700 datasheet, there are graphs for a 200mA load step. Estimate the energy shortfall as 12uJ. Say...
  • Daniel: It's been a week and my comment is still awaiting moderation. Apparently the CIA doesn't want their involvement known?
  • KH: Agree, so okay, I guess he must have learned from somewhere. 100nF and 1000uF is so far apart, that was jarring; it's more magic incantation...
