How do I convert an analogue signal to a digital signal and display it on 7 segment LED's. This must be done without using any programmable micro-controllers.
It's for a school project. The analogue input signal is coming from another unit which monitors the room temperature.

    \$\begingroup\$ It looks like. Ok, no MCU. Use a CPLD and an ADC instead ;-) \$\endgroup\$ – Jacen Apr 8 '16 at 12:26
  • \$\begingroup\$ Just get a digital multimeter and save yourself the hassle of designing something with weird constraints. \$\endgroup\$ – Andy aka Apr 8 '16 at 12:43

    \$\begingroup\$ If it is homework, then I expect the correct answer would be: implement a simple ADC with parallel output, then use a pile of discrete logic ICs to take in the binary bits and drive the LED display. \$\endgroup\$ – JRE Apr 8 '16 at 12:44

You use a digital voltmeter chip such as the Intersil ICL7107.
