I want to ask a question about a project I am making, I am using a seven segment. Here is Information about the seven segment: http://www.4project.co.il/documents/doc_188_54.pdf
I want to use this seven segment but when I read about it, it said that the maximum voltage allowed is 2.2 (V) also maximum current is 20 (MA) and I only have the ability to give it 5 (V), my question is : Can I give 5 voltage and use a resistor to decrease the current to 20 (MA), will it work or will it burn it? and is it OK to go pass the max voltage but not pass and max current,and the device will still work?
Please help, I have already burned two seven segment....yeah.
