    Shifter kit v1.1

    This kit is for the TPIC6B595 Shift Register 8-bit High Power IC. The kit contains a filter capacitor, Shift Register, Break Away Headers and PCB. Each channel can sink 150mA continuous, 500mA maximum.

    This board is perfect for driving our 7-Segment Red 6.5" Displays.  Please view video below for example of cascading 2 devices. Please note that the datasheet below shows 1K load resistors, we have found that using 1M resistors stops any non lit segments from showing a slight glow from the segment.

      Any reason the output enable pin on the chip is not exposed on the board?

    2. May the force be with you!

      Very handy board!
      And always nice to have Yoda's approval!

    4. Datasheet

      Posted by on

      There is a datasheet which includes schematics showing you how to wire this kit up to an Arduino or any other MCU. There is also example Arduino code and a library written to help newcomers.

    5. Integration help

      Posted by on

      is there a tutorial available on how to actually use this board? i.e. how to actually wire it up to the arduino and get it functioning?
