Hi Vlad, great program Simvim.

I'm using 6 DM13A's for output for the B738 overhead panel.

I have five working great, however the configurator doesn't appear to recognise the sixth. I'm using output pins 30, 32 - 36. Is there a maximum number of DM13A's which can be used.

Cheers, Graham

1. On this page you can see the diagram (see the "Serial LEDs output capacity" header):

2. Any pin that is allowed in the configurator can be used, up to #69 (A15),
the coloured 30-37 are reserved for directly connected 7-segment displays and PWM driver.

For DM13A you can select any other.

4. You can have at least up to 20 outputs used for serial LEDs.

5. You can combine the number of used drivers - for one pin you can connect one driver (up to 16 LEDs) , for another pin - 3 drivers, and so on (up to 4 drivers or 64 LEDs max.)  -depending on your system, how is more comfortable for you.
