Experiment-11
BCD code to 7- Segment Decoder
11-1 Object:

To explain operation of BCD code / 7-segment decoder circuit.

11-2 Theory:

Decoder is a circuit convert a binary code in its inputs to a numerical output in


decimal.
BCD (Binary coded in Decimal) code, that is mean to coded decimal number by
a four digits in binary number system. As an example if you have to convert (7534)10
to BCD code, then it will be (0111 0101 0011 0100)BCD. The output of 7 segment
decoder is drive a seven LED's, to represent the ten characters of the Arabic number
[0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9] as shown in figure 11.1a. for 6 number from [10 to 15] the
output will be just symbols without meaning, as shown in figure 11.1b below.

11-3 Procedures:

1. Integrated circuit will be used in this experiment is (7447N). it is an IC with


four inputs [A, B, C, D] and seven output used to drive the seven LED's.
2. LT, RBI, and BI/RBO is feed by logic one
3. To display the output of BCD/7-segment decoder you have to use a 7-segment
com A, feed it CA with logic one.
4. Connections are given as per circuit diagram in fig.11.2.

5. Logical inputs are given as per circuit diagram by four logic sources [A, B, C,
D].
6. Observe the output and verify the truth table
