MC14489 7 segment display with multiple segments
In the stampworks experiment book, there is an example (#31) showing how to hook up all 5 of the 7 segment displays on the PDB. I've duplicated the circuit using the MC14489 multiplexer. The code for this example is written in pbasic and I was wanting to write the code using java and the javelin stamp. Everything is coming together smoothly, however, the MC14489 requires a shiftOut to it of 24 bits. From what I've seen the java command for shiftOut can only send 16 bits. Is there a way to send 24 bits with the shiftOut command? Can I do it in too shiftOut commands? (each of 12 bits) Or if not, how can I duplicate this example using the javelin stamp.
