7-Segment LED schematic
Note how the output letters of the integrated circuit [Output A] match with the Diode letters in the 7-Segment LED above. Each IC output corresponds to a particular input [diode] of the seven segment display.
The Lamp Test input pin on the IC simply just turns all the LEDs on at the same time. While the Blanking pin forces all the LEDs to turn off.
7447 IC 7 Segment Decoder True Table
7447 True Table Notes:
1. BI/RBO is wire-OR logic serving as blanking input (BI) and/or ripple-blanking output (RBO). The blanking input must be open or held at a high logic level when output functions 0 through 15 are desired, and ripple-blanking input (RBI) must be open or at a high logic level during the decimal 0 output. X = input may be high or low.
2. When a low logic level is applied to the blanking input (forced condition) all segment outputs go to a low logic level regardless of the state of any other input condition.
3. When ripple-blanking input (RBI) is at a low logic level, lamp test input is at high logic level and A = B = C = D = low logic level, all segment outputs go to a low logic level and the ripple-blanking output goes to a low logic level (response condition).
4. When blanking input/ripple-blanking output is open or held at a high logic level, and a low logic level is applied to lamp test input, all segment outputs go to a high logic level.
