Hello Electronics Lovers, today I am going to show you that how to interface Seven Segment display with Arduino in Proteus. I am assuming that everyone who is reading this post will know basics of Seven segment display, in short, seven segment display is an electronic component having the ability to show numeric data to a user. Normally you will find Seven Segments Displays easily in different colors in the market. Basically, seven segment display is the combination of Multiple LEDs, resistors, and an ic. It is available in Different sizes and shapes.
Let’s come to the point, in the first step you need to Download the source code for Seven segment display. After downloading source code the next task is to make hex file from that code. For this purpose, you need to copy that code and put it on Arduino Software (IDE). In past tutorial ” Download Arduino Library for Proteus 7 & 8 (Updated version) “, I have explained the overall process in step no 5 that how to make Hex file from source code in Arduino Software (IDE).
I am assuming that latest version of Proteus simulation software has been installed on your pc. Before going to open Proteus software Kindly install Arduino libraries for proteus Download Arduino Library for Proteus 7 & 8 (Updated version).
Once you have done all the above steps, go and search for Arduino and seven segment display in Proteus, make sure that you drag both components to the main window of Proteus correctly as shown in the given picture below. Connect your seven segment display and Arduino Uno properly with respective pins.
Double click on Arduino board to upload a Hex file of seven segment display to Arduino board. The last and final step is to Run the simulation, hopefully, you will see numeric counting in seven segment display from 0 to 9 in a loop. If you want to add another display, LCD, and sensors to the existing circuitry. Yes, You can easily upgrade the above circuitry and code as per your requirement.
If you found any difficulty while making this project in Proteus so don’t hesitate to ask we are here to help you anytime.
