Need a node for a 7 segment display


#1

any ideas of how to make a node for a 1 digit 7 segment display?

It all depends on how you drive it. All 7-segment displays are basically groups of eight independent LEDs which you might control with the standard led node. However, straight use involves much wiring and many pins occuppied. For that reason many 7-segment display modules place some kind of driver ahead of the LEDs. And the drivers are different and so require different interfacing.

What kind of display you would like to hook up? Would you provide a link?
