In this activity, you will learn how to connect 7 segment display to the breadboard.

Component Required:

  • Breadboard

  • Battery

  • Connecting Wires

  • Seven Segment Display

  • Resistor- 1k Ohm

Let’s start!

Open Tinkercad and click ‘Create new circuit’.

Step 1: Take out a breadboard and connect the battery as shown.

Step 2: Search for 7 segment display from the components and place it on the breadboard.

You can change component as anode or cathode.

Step 3: Now, take out a resistor and place it on the common terminal of display and other end to the positive rail of the breadboard, as here we selected common anode.

Step 4: Now connect first terminal with the ground rail of the breadboard. Click on ‘Start Simulation’.

As you can see one LED will start glowing.

Step 5: Click on ‘ Stop simulation’. Connect second terminal of he display to the ground rail.

When you click on ‘ Start simulation’, you can see the other LED will start glowing.

Step 6: Click on ‘Stop simulation’. Now connect all the terminals to the ground rail.

Step 7: Click on ‘Start Simulation’. You can see all LEDs will start glowing.

To see every numeral from 1-8 connect the particular LEDs one by one to the ground rail.

Hence, the circuit is ready.
