Lesson 23: LED Nixie Tube Static Display Interface and Programming

In single chip microcomputer system, led nixie tube display is often used to display various numbers or symbols. Because it has the characteristics of clear display, high brightness, low voltage and long service life, it is widely used.

Introduction: remember the "matchstick game" we played when we were children? Several matchsticks can be combined to form a variety of graphics. In fact, led nixie tube display is such a thing.

Eight Segment LED nixie tube display

The eight Segment LED nixie tube display is composed of eight light-emitting diodes. In the base, seven long strip-shaped light-emitting tubes are arranged in the shape of "day". Another dot shaped light-emitting tube is used to display the decimal point in the lower right corner of the nixie tube display. It can display various numbers and some English letters. Led nixie tube display has two different forms: one is that the anodes of 8 light-emitting diodes are connected together, which is called common anode led nixie tube display; The other is that the cathodes of 8 light-emitting diodes are connected together, which is called common cathode led nixie tube display. As shown in the figure below

The name and arrangement position of each stroke segment of LED nixie tube display with common Yin and common Yang structure are the same. When the diode is turned on, the corresponding stroke segments are illuminated, and various characters are displayed by the combination of the illuminated stroke segments. Eight stroke segments hgfedcba correspond to D7 D6 D5 D4 D3 D2 D1 d0 of one byte (8 bits), so the font code of the character to be displayed can be represented by an 8-bit binary code. For example, for the common cathode led nixie tube display, when the common cathode is grounded (zero level) and the anode hgfedcba sections are 011011, the nixie tube display displays the "P" character, that is, for the common cathode led nixie tube display, the font code of the "P" character is 73h. If it is a common anode led nixie tube display, the common anode is connected to high level, and the font code of "P" character shall be 10001100 (8CH). It must be noted here that in order to facilitate wiring, many products often do not correspond to the relationship between fields and bits in a regular way. At this time, the font code must be designed according to the wiring. We will give a routine later.

In the application system of single chip microcomputer, there are two common methods for nixie tube display: static display and dynamic scanning display. The so-called static display means that each nixie tube display occupies a separate I / O interface with latch function for stroke segment font code. In this way, as long as the single chip microcomputer sends the font code to be displayed to the interface circuit, it doesn't have to worry about it. Until new data is to be displayed, it will send a new font code. Therefore, using this method, the CPU overhead in the single chip microcomputer is small. There are many I / O interface circuits that can provide separate latch. Here, taking the commonly used serial parallel conversion circuit 74LS164 as an example, a commonly used static display circuit is introduced to make everyone have a certain understanding of static display.

The serial port mode of MCS-51 single chip microcomputer is shift register mode, 6 pieces of 74LS164 are connected externally as the static display interface of 6-bit led nixie tube display, RXD of 8031 is used as the data output line and TXD is used as the shift clock pulse. 74LS164 is a TTL unidirectional 8-bit shift register, which can realize serial input and parallel output. Among them, a and B (pins 1 and 2) are serial data input terminals. The two pins input signals according to the logic and operation law. When one input signal is common, it can be connected in parallel. T (pin 8) is the clock input terminal, which can be connected to the TXD terminal of the serial port. When the rising edge of each clock signal is added to the t end, the shift register is moved by one bit. After 8 clock pulses, all 8-bit binary numbers are moved into 74LS164. R (pin 9) is the reset end. When r = 0, each bit of the shift register is reset to 0. Only when r = 1, the clock pulse works. The parallel output terminals of Q1... Q8 (pins 3-6 and 10-13) are respectively connected to the corresponding pins of hg--- a segments of LED nixie tube display. The 74LS164 can also be introduced as follows: the so-called clock pulse end actually requires high, low, high and low pulses. No matter how the pulse comes, for example, we use a wire, one end is connected to t, the other end is held by hand, and the high level and low level are connected respectively. That is to give the clock pulse and obtain the clock pulse at the moment of 74LS164 (to be clear, it is at the edge of the pulse) if the data input terminal (pins 1 and 2) If it is a high level, a 1 will enter the 74LS164. If the data input is a low level, a 0 will enter the 74LS164. After eight pulses are given, the first data entering the 74LS164 reaches the highest level, and then what happens to another pulse? Another pulse, the first pulse will move out of the highest level, just like the station platoon When the team buys tickets, the railing is so long. If you want to go in from the back, you must go out from the front.

After understanding this point, let's look at the circuit. Six pieces of 7ls164 are connected in series, and the clock ends are connected together. In this way, when eight pulses are input, the data output from the RXD end of the single chip microcomputer enters the first piece of 74LS164. When the second eight pulses arrive, the data enters the second piece of 74LS164, and the new data enters the first piece of 74LS164. In this way, When the sixth eight pulses are completed, the data sent for the first time is sent to the leftmost 164, and other data appears in the first, second, third, fourth and fifth 74LS164 in turn. There is a problem. When the first pulse arrives, what are the other chips doing except receiving data in the first 74LS164? They are also receiving data, because their clock ends are connected together Yes, but the data has not been sent to other chips yet. What data are they receiving? In fact, the so-called data is just a statement. In fact, it is the level. When the first pulse arrives, the first chip 164 certainly receives data from the single chip microcomputer, and other chips are also connected to the Q8 of the previous chip, which is a wire, which is used in the digital circuit There are only two possible states: low or high, i.e. "0" and "1" So its next 74LS164 is also receiving data. It only receives 0 or 1. This problem is explained here. Some friends may ignore it, but some friends may still not know it. This actually involves the essence of numbers. If you don't understand it, please think carefully, find some numbers of digital circuits and understand the working principle of 164, Let's look at this problem again, or take a look at my other article "lesson 27: some basic concepts about single chip microcomputer". Be sure to understand it. If you understand this, your level will be higher than the beginning learner and can be described as a beginner.

Entry: put the number to be displayed in 6 units of display buffer 60h-65h respectively, and correspond to each nixie tube led0-led5 respectively.

Exit: convert the 6 numbers preset in the display buffer into corresponding display font codes, and then output them to the nixie tube display for display.

The LED display program of single chip microcomputer is as follows:

Disp: mov scon, #00h; initialize serial port mode 0

Mov R1, #06h; display 6 digits

Mov R0, #65h; 60h-65h is the display buffer

Mov dptr, #segtab; entry address of font table


Mov a, @ R0; take the highest data to be displayed

MOVC a, @ a dptr; look up the table to get the font code

Mov SBUF, a; send serial port display

Delay: JNB Ti, delay; wait for sending

CLR Ti; clear send flag

Dec R0; the pointer moves down one bit, ready to take down a number to be displayed

Djnz R1, loop; until all 6 data are displayed.


Settab: font table, which was introduced earlier. We will introduce the production of font table later.

DB 03H 9FH 27H 0DH 99H 49H 41H 1FH 01H 09H 0FFH

ORG 0000H




MOV 65H,#0

MOV 64H,#1

MOV 63H,#2

MOV 62H,#3

MOV 61H,#4

MOV 60H,#5



If the nixie tube is arranged as shown in the figure, the above main program will display 543210. Think about it. How to send data if 012345 is to be displayed?

Next, let's analyze the making of font table. Let's look at the above "standard" graphics first. Write the corresponding relationship between data bits and font and make a table as follows (set it as common Yang type, that is, when the corresponding output bit is 0, the pen segment is bright)

How about the font table? Just make a table like this. Write the 0 and 1 of the corresponding bits according to the requirements (0 or 1). Do an exercise and write the font code of a-f.

If the order of wiring is disrupted for the convenience of wiring, how to connect the font table? It is also very simple and the same list. Take the new experimental board as an example, common Yang type. The wiring is as follows:

P0.7 P0.6 P0.5 P0.4 P0.3 P0.2 P0.1 P0.0


Then the font code is as follows:

;0 00101000 28H

;1 01111110 7EH

;2 10100100 0A4H

;3 01100100 64H

;4 01110010 72H

;5 01100001 61H

;6 00100001 21H

;7 01111100 7CH

;8 00100000 20H

;9 01100000 60H

As an exercise, write the font code of a-f.

Originally, this is to explain the static interface of single-chip microcomputer nixie tube display. This should be the end, but I also want to talk about the essence of numbers mentioned above. There are some terms and nouns in single-chip microcomputer that originally help us understand things, but sometimes we will be confused by the related semantics of these terms, so that we can't further understand their essence Therefore, we are generally confused. Only by deeply understanding the working characteristics of 74LS164 can we really understand what serial data is. Interested friends can also look at my website to find relevant content

Is the Traditional Energy-saving Lamp Regulator Used for LED Circuit? Detailed Analysis of 11 Defect
Can the controller of traditional energy-saving lamp act on LED circuit?There are many options for buying LED bulbs, but compatible led dimmers are difficult to choose. Many users will confidently say that it is OK to use the dimmer of traditional incandescent lamps. Now the most commonly seen on the market is thyristor dimmer, which is divided into DC and ac. it is very easy to use in incandescent lamps.After selecting the LED lamp with appropriate color temperature, lumen grade and beam angle, the dimming requirements are met. Different from the random dimming method of ordinary incandescent lamps, dimming LED bulbs with thyristors may be successful, but many problems will occur in most cases.Four conditions:The most common problem is that there is a buzzing beep or a strong stroboscopic. Ordinary incandescent lamps only need to adjust the voltage to adjust the light and shade, but it may not work for LED lamps. We have done experiments and the following four situations have occurred:1. It can't be opened at all. It doesn't light up at all!2. It can only be on at 100% illumination.3. It can work normally, but the buzzing sound is very loud.4. Stroboscopic occurs when it is adjusted to a certain brightness.Dimming principle:During the test, sometimes the LED can be used normally after it is dimmed to a certain limit. We judge that the reason why it doesn't light up is that the applied voltage of the dimmer is too small to reach the required voltage.The internal circuit of LED is much more complex than that of incandescent lamp. The real led dimmer is not only regulating voltage, but also has three principles:1. Wave width control dimming: digitize the square wave of the power supply and control the duty cycle of the square wave, so as to control the current.2. Constant current power supply regulation: the current can be easily adjusted by analog linear technology.3. Grouping control: group multiple LEDs and control them with a simple grouping device.Note the strobe:The reasons for the most stroboscopic cases are as follows: the adjustable resistor itself is not a very reliable component. Often, due to the entry of dust or the lax manufacturing process, there will be an instant jump fault when operating the adjustable resistor, and the light source will flash. Therefore, we need high-quality adjustable resistance, or use linear technology to regulate current rather than voltage.In fact, the internal driving function of LED itself can easily adjust the brightness and darkness, but most LED manufacturers remove this function to save costs. Whether the LED lamp can be dimmed is usually marked on the box. If there is no mark on the box, please use the dimming function with caution or use a special LED dimmer.Dimming will reduce life:A reminder is that dimming can easily reduce the life of the bulb. Why? Simply take a dimming method: we divide one second into 1000 parts, each part is 1 millisecond, and then make the LED light work for 7 milliseconds and turn off for 3 milliseconds through the control chip. In this way, it only works for 0.7 seconds in one second. However, due to the fast flashing interval, we can't feel its brightness flickering with our naked eyes, and we will only feel that its brightness has darkened, which is 0.7 times the original, This achieves the effect of dimming. Similarly, we can achieve 50% brightness, 32% brightness and any brightness. Blink in this way, it's strange not to break early!In order to avoid various problems, try not to use the physical dimming method for the smart bulb. Take out the mobile phone and open the app to adjust the light and shade.In fact, I still like to use the way of grouping device to control the brightness, which is simple, safe and easy to use. It can be easily done by touching the key switch or independent grouping switch. It is not necessary to fine tune the brightness from 0 to 100% perfectly in the home. It is OK to realize several levels of brightness adjustment, which can fully meet the needs.Analysis and retrieval of 11 disadvantages of LED wick:Compared with traditional incandescent lamps, led filament lamps have higher requirements for packaging. It is reported that at present, led filament lamps have very strict requirements for filament working voltage design, filament working current design, LED chip area and power, LED chip luminous angle, pin design, glass bulb sealing technology, etc. it can be seen that the manufacturing process of LED filament lamps is very complex, and there are certain requirements for the financial strength, supporting facilities and technology of manufacturers.In the production process, due to different processes, the requirements for materials are also different. In addition, in production, many equipment need to be transformed according to the performance characteristics of LED filament lamps, which also makes the manufacturers of relevant materials of LED filament lamps miserable. The defects in the bulb material also make the LED filament lamp easy to be damaged during transportation. The complex process and low yield make the LED filament lamp unable to obtain high praise from manufacturers and consumers.1. Difficult process, poor heat dissipation and easy damageAlthough led filament lamps have attracted much attention in the domestic market in the past two years, at present, the problems existing in the production of LED filament lamps can not be ignored: the manufacturing process is difficult, several different processes need to be integrated, and the yield is low; More than 8W led filament lamps are prone to heat dissipation problems; It is easy to be broken and damaged in the process of production and use.2. Structure, performance and price to be improvedDue to the relatively late entry of LED filament lamps into the market, the market-related sharp bubbles, tail bubbles and spherical bulbs are mainly "patch type". In addition, the filament lamps that entered the market in the early stage are far from consumers' expectations in terms of structure, performance and price, which makes consumers have some misunderstandings about led filament lamps. With the breakthrough of key technologies, the maturity of packaging technology and the improvement of bubble sealing technology, the luminous efficiency, finger display, service life and cost of LED filament lamps will be improved to a certain extent.At present, the LED filament lamp needs to be improved in too many places. It is like a newborn "premature baby". It is not very mature in all aspects, with high cost, complex production process and low production capacity. Therefore, we should improve the raw materials, led beads and manufacturing process in the future, so as to improve the production capacity of LED filament lamps, reduce losses and improve delivery efficiency.3. Low power and poor heat dissipation are obstaclesAffected by the production process, there are many problems in LED filament lamps, such as high cost and high damage rate during transportation due to the defects of bulb material. In addition, the heat dissipation of high wattage led filament lamps has also become an obstacle for LED filament lamps to enter ordinary people's homes.Problem 2: high priceAccording to the market survey, the average retail price of a 3W led filament lamp is about 28-30 yuan, which is much higher than that of LED bulb lamps and other lighting products with the same power, and several times higher than that of LED incandescent lamps with the same power. Therefore, many consumers are scared away by the price of LED filament lamps.At this stage, the market share of LED filament lamps is less than 10%. Nowadays, as a characteristic product, led filament lamp restores the luminous feeling of traditional tungsten filament lamp and is loved by many consumers. However, the high cost, low light efficiency and small application range of LED filament lamps are also the problems that lighting manufacturers must face and look directly at in the next stage.1. Supporting materials increase product costThe market prospect of LED filament lamp is very bright, but there are difficulties in the promotion of LED filament lamp at this stage, mainly due to its high cost and the lack of large wattage, which makes the application of LED filament lamp limited to the flower lamp market. In addition, the matching of raw materials also increases the cost, because there is no standard in the specification and shape of filament lamp, and its market volume is small, As a result, the supporting materials are basically customized, and the manufacturing cost remains high.2. The cost of LED filament is too highAmong all parts of LED filament lamp, the highest cost is led filament, mainly because of its complex production process and high cutting cost; The production efficiency is not high and the degree of automation is low, resulting in the cost. At present, the cost of 3-6w filament bulb can be controlled below 15 yuan, of which the cost of LED filament accounts for more than half.3. The packaging of LED filament lamp is exquisiteThe packaging of LED filament lamps is more exquisite. The light effects encapsulated by each enterprise are different. Led filament lamps still have certain limitations in power and heat dissipation, resulting in higher prices than ordinary LED light sources.Problem 3: small marketAt this stage, the power of the best-selling led filament lamp in the market is basically less than 10W, which shows that at this stage, the LED filament lamp is technically trapped in the problem of heat dissipation and can not achieve high power. It also shows that it can only cover a small section of the whole lighting product line and can not be widely promoted. Even if it plays the "nostalgic" brand, the LED filament lamp market is only a small market, It can't become the mainstream for the time being.1. Low consumer acceptanceWith the shrinking incandescent lamp and energy-saving lamp market, LED lighting products are slowly recognized by end consumers. However, at present, the market of LED filament lamps is still very limited. Due to the limited application and power of LED filament lamps, the acceptance of LED filament lamps by end consumers is not very high.In addition, consumers do not know enough about led filament lamps. Many people think it is just an improvement of ordinary incandescent lamps.2. The main demand comes from the projectAs LED filament lamps are mainly used in flower lamps, and their main demand comes from engineering lighting, general dealers will not mainly promote LED filament lamps. Even if a few businesses sell LED filament lamps, they won't have too much inventory.Problem 4: difficult to promoteEntering the terminal market, we can find that the LED filament lamp is not as hot as expected for two reasons:1、 Many stores do not promote filament lamps as key products, and consumers' awareness and acceptance of filament lamps are not high;2、 Compared with LED light source products such as bulb and sharp bulb, led filament lamp products have no qualitative change. On the contrary, the price is relatively high and it is difficult to go. Let alone replace the market position of LED bulb, energy-saving lamp and other products.Therefore, at present, the market advantage of LED filament lamp is not very obvious, and the market is basically waiting and trying.At present, the difficulty of pushing led filament lamps in the terminal market lies in:1、 Poor integration between traditional bubble sealing industry and LED packaging industry (concept and process integration);2、 It is not easy to reverse the concept of end consumers;3、 The acceptance of LED filament lamp products by society and government is not clear. In addition, the price of LED filament lamp is high, and consumers have not really distinguished the difference between LED filament lamp and incandescent lamp, which leads to the difficulty of LED filament lamp market promotion.1. Merchants are not active in promotionAt present, if led filament lamps want to achieve good performance in the market, they also need to strengthen publicity and innovation. The development of LED industry is increasingly fierce, and industry standards have been issued one after another, which has exacerbated the market development resistance of LED filament lamps. Especially at this stage, many consumers do not understand led filament lamps, and merchants are not active enough in promoting led filament lamps. Even most merchants are not very optimistic about their development prospects. In actual sales, customers usually see or ask, Businesses will push this product.2. High price makes promotion difficultAt present, it is difficult to promote LED filament lamps in the market. Because consumers do not know much about led filament lamps, the probability of purchase is very small. In addition, due to the impact of e-commerce, the transaction rate of LED in physical stores is lower. Some consumers pay more attention to the price when purchasing products. Therefore, there is still a long way to go for LED filament lamps to enter the families of ordinary consumers.3. Lack of new selling points of LED filament lampsAt present, led filament lamp is in the primary stage of promotion, and very few people know its advantages because of the appearance and original quality of the product
