Chain of five tiny7s and ESP8266

A project log for tiny7

small seven segment display for plugging on an ISP programming header of an Atmel Board or an Arduino

The tiny7 does also work with the Arduino IDE and the ESP8266. And five digits do work well. And a supply voltage of only 3.3V is also working.

The library for writing chars is still very experimental - as you can see by the code used:

#include <tiny7.h>
#define S_SDO 12
#define S_CLK 14
#define S_LTH 16
tiny7 myTiny7;

void setup() 
{
  myTiny7.begin(0, S_SDO, S_CLK, S_LTH);	
  myTiny7.show(7,0);    // ptint 7
  myTiny7.show(20,0);   // print Y
  myTiny7.show(16,0);   // print n
  myTiny7.show(19,0);   // print i
  myTiny7.show(18,0);   // peint t
  delay(1000);
}
I will try to add a better way to show strings or larger numbers soon. I am thinking of something like: myTiny7.print("string").

does it work on the radio module as well? ;)

  Are you sure? yes | no

Well if I would program the radio module with the Arduino IDE this
should work. But so far I programmed the radio module with Atmel Studio
and there is no working library for tiny7 and Atmel Studio yet (But this
is on the to-do-list).

I'm using the usbasp to program the module over the arduino IDE :) had to add some hardware files. Needs some work too
