Hey guys i am really confused, i would like to make a clock and control matrix displays, but i don't know how to use the MAX 7129 (is that even the right number???)!!!! I need major help, like first, How do i wire it up to the BS2? where can i get it? how much is it? (someone said you can get something like 10 for free from the site they are made on) What·kind of BS2 code do i use to work it?· and last, will parallax's 1 digit LED segment displays work with them? how would i wire them up and if not where can i find another type of segment display that would work with it? Thanks!!!

Google max7129 for the datasheet and go to digikey.com and type max7129 for parts.

First of all this is·a volt·meter and you can not interface a Basic Stamp with this one

How ever you can with the link the one bellow MAX1479

http://datasheets.maxim-ic.com/en/ds/MAX1497-MAX1499.pdf

If you need a demo code for this chip I have one

But this maybe what you are looking for MAX6969
