IC - Display digit driver
40 pin DIP Gottlieb Display Digit driver IC
The Rockwell / Micrel MIC10939, MIC10942, and MIC10943 Dot Matrix Display Controller is a three-chip MOS/LSI general purpose display controller system designed to interface to dot matrix displays (vacuum fluorescent or LED).
The three-chip set will drive displays with up to 46 anodes (dots) and up to 20 grids (characters) plus a cursor. The chips can be cascaded to drive larger displays of up to 80 characters. An internal PLA-type decoder provides character decoding and dot pattern generation for the full 96-character ASCII set and an additional 32 special characters.
