int8_t sb_7seg_showHexNumber (uint8_t nmbr)
 prints the hexadecimal representation of an 8-bit unsigned integer on the 7-segment display

Detailed Description

Controls the two 7-segment displays on the board.

The two 7-segment displays of the SPiCboard share one common port of the MCU. The two displays can be connected and disconnected from the port using two transistors. By quickly and periodically connecting and disconnecting the displays an observer will not be able to notice when a display is disabled and both displays can be used apparently simultaneously.

Note
As the timer-library is used, interrupts must be enabled for the display to work

void sb_7seg_disable ( void  )

disables the 7-segment displays

Any running alarms are unregistered.

int8_t sb_7seg_showHexNumber ( uint8_t  nmbr)

prints the hexadecimal representation of an 8-bit unsigned integer on the 7-segment display

Parameters
nmbrthe number to print
Return values
0on success
!0on error
int8_t sb_7seg_showNumber ( int8_t  nmbr)

prints a number in the range [-9; 99] on the 7-segment display

Parameters
nmbrthe number to print
