Re: MM5453N LCD ??

I think I have it figured out. The Lowe HF-235 radio can tune up to
X29.999MHz, where X is used as a status indicator and driven by an
exclusive-or gate. For display of frequency the leading or most significant
digit of the five can only be a one or a two. For a one bits 31 and 32
drive segments b and c. Segments a,d,e,g are tied together and bits 31 and
33 would make a 2. So if I'm using the correct terminology the 5453 is
driving a 4 1/2 digit display that has 6 digits where X is driven by another
chip and the next digit can only be a one or a two.
So I need to find a 6 digit LCD with 50 pins that match. Any ideas

You don't even need to get involved in the extra complexity of blitting just the seven little segments, because on most machines blitting seven small separate blocks to the display will actually be slower than simply blitting the entire seven segment digit as one block, even though the combined total area of the seven segments is much less than the area of the entire digit, because for small blits a significant part of the total blit time is taken up by the system analysing the two DCs before it actually performs the blit. ...
