Is there a single IC solution which will act as serial parallel driver for this 7 segment led

  • \$\begingroup\$ If you only need to drive a single 7-segment LED, there are 7400 series components for that. \$\endgroup\$ – Nick Johnson Dec 11 '12 at 14:55
  • \$\begingroup\$ hmmm.. no, 4 digit, as shown in picture. I am aware of 7400 series. \$\endgroup\$ – Pablo Dec 11 '12 at 15:27

The MAX7219 drives up to eight 7-segment LED and interfaces via SPI to a microcontroller. Is it that what you are looking for?
