Counter 7 Segment circuit help
« on: March 25, 2008, 15:40:28 PM »
I have the attached circuit and i wonder: The 330 Ohm resistors that i have chosen for the limiting current from IC to 7 seg is enough or should i choose a bigger resisotors?

You need 30mA
You can calculate the resistance using the ohms law. You do not provide the voltage so i cannot help you more.

Get more info here: http://www.pcbheaven.com/theory/ohm/

And calculate it here: http://www.pcbheaven.com/handbook/calculus/index.php?calc=ohm

Lower than 1K. They will be not bright enough.

Depends on the voltage

R=U/I = 5/0.02 = 250

330 ohm is ok.
