Introduction

Grove - 4-Digit Display module is a 12-pin module. In this module, we utilise a TM1637 to scale down the number of controlling pins to 2. That is to say, it controls both the content and the luminance via only 2 digital pins of Arduino or Seeeduino. For projects that require alpha-numeric display, this can be a nice choice.

Model: LED05291P

Displaying the Numbers (4-Digital-Display)

This example demonstrates how to display some digital numbers using a Grove-4-Digital Display.

/*
 * TM1637.cpp
 * A library for the 4 digit display
 */
#include "TM1637.h"
#define CLK 39 //pins definitions for TM1637 and can be changed to other ports
#define DIO 38
TM1637 tm1637(CLK,DIO);
void setup()
{
  tm1637.init();
  tm1637.set(BRIGHT_TYPICAL);//BRIGHT_TYPICAL = 2,BRIGHT_DARKEST = 0,BRIGHTEST = 7;
}
void loop()
{
  int8_t NumTab[] = {0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15};//0~9,A,b,C,d,E,F
  int8_t ListDisp[4];
  unsigned char i = 0;
  unsigned char count = 0;
  delay(150);
  while(1)
  {
    i = count;
    count ++;
    if(count == sizeof(NumTab)) count = 0;
    for(unsigned char BitSelect = 0;BitSelect < 4;BitSelect ++)
    {
      ListDisp[BitSelect] = NumTab[i];
      i ++;
      if(i == sizeof(NumTab)) i = 0;
    }
    tm1637.display(0,ListDisp[0]);
    tm1637.display(1,ListDisp[1]);
    tm1637.display(2,ListDisp[2]);
    tm1637.display(3,ListDisp[3]);
    delay(300);
  }
}

With Arduino

The module uses an LED drive chip - TM1637 to control the contents and change the luminance. Here we drive it to display time.
1. Connect the Grove socket marked "IN" on the LED Strip Driver and digital port 2 of the Grove - Base Shield with a Grove cable. You can change to the digital port as you like. But don't forget to change the port number in the definition of the demo code at the same time.
2. Plug onto Arduino/Seeeduino or plug Grove - Mega Shield onto Arduino Mega.

Arduino Mega and Grove - 4-digit display:

3. Connect Arduino/Seeeduino to PC via a USB cable.
4. Download the 4-Digit Display library and TimerOne library. Unzip and put them in the libraries file of Arduino IDE by the path: ..\arduino-1.0\libraries.

5. Restart the Arduino IDE, open one demo code you like, for example ClockDisplay directly by the path:File -> Example ->DigitalTube->ClockDisplay.

6. Upload the demo code and the clock will be ticking in a few seconds. Please click here if you do not know how to upload.

With Raspberry Pi

1.You should have got a raspberry pi and a grovepi or grovepi+.
2.You should have completed configuring the development enviroment, otherwise follow here.
3.Connection

  • Plug the sensor to grovepi socket D5 by using a grove cable.

4.Navigate to the demos' directory:

   cd yourpath/GrovePi/Software/Python/
  • To see the code
   nano grove_4_digit_display.py   # "Ctrl+x" to exit #
import time
import grovepi

# Connect the Grove 4 Digit Display to digital port D5
# CLK,DIO,VCC,GND
display = 5
grovepi.pinMode(display,"OUTPUT")

# If you have an analog sensor connect it to A0 so you can monitor it below
sensor = 0
grovepi.pinMode(sensor,"INPUT")

time.sleep(.5)

# 4 Digit Display methods
# grovepi.fourDigit_init(pin)
# grovepi.fourDigit_number(pin,value,leading_zero)
# grovepi.fourDigit_brightness(pin,brightness)
# grovepi.fourDigit_digit(pin,segment,value)
# grovepi.fourDigit_segment(pin,segment,leds)
# grovepi.fourDigit_score(pin,left,right)

5.Run the demo.

   sudo python grove_4_digit_display.py

6.This demo may not work if your grovepi dosen't have the newest firmware, update the firmware.

cd yourpath/GrovePi/Firmware
sudo ./firmware_update.sh
