** # Introduction**

In storage in computers, binary data is often used to represent data. However, in life, people are more accustomed to using decimal numbers to represent data. Therefore, the BCD code is generated. The BCD code uses a 4-bit binary number to represent a 0-9 decimal number. In this report, we will introduce and design a BCD code decoder composed of NAND gate and NAND gate, and use this decoder to drive a 7-segment digital tube to display digits 0-9. At the same time, a verification circuit based on the D-type flip-flop and CD4017 (decimal counter) is designed to simulate the circuit results. Finally, import the schematic diagram into a PCB file and draw a PCB drawing that complies with industry standards.

# Truth table and minimum logical relationship

Before the design process below starts, the working principle of the 7-segment digital tube will be introduced first. Because this is very important for the design below.

As shown in the above figure, the 7-segment digital tube can be regarded as a combination of components arranged by 7 LEDs in a certain positional relationship on the circuit. The 7-segment digital tube is also divided into two types: common yin and common yang. Common cathode means that the cathodes (negative poles) of all LEDs are connected in parallel and led to a port (the port is denoted as COM-). If you need to light a certain segment of the ag tube, you only need to add a positive on the corresponding ag port Voltage (high level), and connect the COM- port to the negative pole of the power supply. On the contrary, the common anode means that the anodes (positive poles) of all LEDs are connected in parallel to a port (port is denoted as COM +). If you need to light up a certain segment of ag digital tube, you only need to connect the corresponding ag port to the negative pole , And connect the COM + port to the positive pole of the power supply.

In order to make it easier to use Karnaugh map to simplify the logic algebraic expressions of a-g ports later, the common cathode digital tube is selected for design in this report. Because the on and off of each segment of the common negative digital tube can be easily expressed by 1 (on) and 0 (off), which is the same as the simplification logic of the Karnaugh diagram simplified logic relationship.

As shown in the above figure, it is a schematic diagram of the entire design. The final proteus schematic diagram is more complicated than the above picture. It can be seen from the above figure that the BCD decoder circuit mainly has four inputs of A, B, C, and D, and seven outputs of a, b, c, d, e, f, and g. Here, A is the input MSB (Most Significant Bit) and D is the input LSB (least significant bit).

In propositional logic and boolean algebra, De Morgan's laws[1][2][3] are a pair of transformation rules that are both valid rules of inference. They are named after Augustus De Morgan, a 19th-century British mathematician. The rules allow the expression of conjunctions and disjunctions purely in terms of each other via negation. (Wikipedia,2020)

Since De Morgan's law (inversion law) will be used in the process of changing the logical relationship, the relevant details of this law are introduced here:

This law can easily convert the minimum logic relationship corresponding to each output of the BCD decoder into the form expressed by NAND gate and NOR gate.

The truth table corresponding to the a-g sections will be listed below in order. For convenience, the DEC column is added to the truth table to indicate the decimal number representation corresponding to the 4-bit binary number. Among them, 1 means that the corresponding segment of the nixie tube is on, 0 means that the corresponding segment of the nixie tube is off, and X is a logically unrelated item.

# Schematic design instructions

In order to make the whole schematic diagram more concise, clear and tidy. The above schematic diagram uses the proteus network label to merge the same network, which greatly reduces the number of wiring. The whole schematic diagram is divided into 4 parts, the first part is the BCD decoder implemented with NAND gate and NAND gate, the second part is the digital tube display part, and the third part is the verification circuit part (for verification Whether other circuits work normally), the fourth part is the input terminal part. The sections 1, 2, and 4 will be introduced one by one. Part 3 will be introduced in the next chapter.

**Part 1: BCD decoder circuit**

**Part 2: Digital display circuit**

From the above introduction, we can know that the 7-segment digital tube integrates 7 LED lamp beads, the driving current of each LED lamp bead is 5-8ma, so a 1k resistor is connected in series with the input port of the digital tube ag (Vcc) is 5V, so it can be calculated that the current flowing through each LED lamp bead is 5ma, which meets the requirements of LED lamp bead driving. The resistor will act as a voltage divider and limit current to prevent the LED lamp bead from being burned due to high current.

The digital tube in the above picture is an 8-segment digital tube. Compared with the 7-segment digital tube, there is one more field for controlling the decimal point. In this report, the logic control of the decimal point is not involved, so in the schematic diagram, the field that controls the decimal point is connected to the power ground to ensure that it is always off.

**Part 4: Input terminal circuit**

Because in the PCB design of the schematic diagram drawn in this report, in order to finally design the PCB, it can normally obtain external A, B, C, D signals, and obtain the power supply voltage for the circuit to work. Therefore, the input terminal circuit is designed as above, which is used to obtain the input of external A, B, C, D signals, and to provide the power supply voltage for the circuit operation.

# Simulation method and working principle of test circuit

By analyzing the working principle of the entire schematic, we can know that the key point of the simulation test is the simulation of the four input signals A, B, C, and D. Through the previous BCD decoder truth table, you can know that the four signals of A (MSB), B, C, and D (LSB) represent 4 binary numbers, and the data range is from 0000 (DEC: 0) to 1111 (DEC : 15) One by one jump. But through the truth table, you can know that 1010 (DEC: 10) ~ 1111 (DEC: 15) is invalid (because a digital tube can only display the numbers 0 ~ 9).

Through the above requirement analysis, we can now summarize the requirements of the test circuit. 1. The test circuit should output four signals, A, B, C, and D, and make the signal change from 0000 (DEC: 0) to 1001 (DEC: 9). 2. The rate of change of the four signals A, B, C, and D should be controllable to prevent the simulation phenomenon from being difficult to observe because the signal changes too fast.

In response to the above two-point test circuit requirements, I designed the following test circuit for the simulation of the entire circuit.

The test circuit is very simple to use, just add a clock excitation signal to the CLK port of U14: A, and the four input signals of A, B, C, and D can be realized from 0000 (DEC: 0) to 1001 (DEC : 9) Make changes one by one. Input the changed signal into a-g NAND gate circuit, and then the digital tube can be driven to realize the digital display of 0-9 one by one. The frequency of the signal change is determined by the frequency of the clock excitation signal of the CLK port of U14: A. For the convenience of observation, the frequency of the square wave signal is set to 1 Hz below.

The test circuit consists of 4 D-type flip-flops and 2 CD4017 decimal counters, and a NOT gate. The Q port of each D-type flip-flop is connected to D (LSB), C, B, and A (MSB).

When no clock signal is received at the CLK port of U14: A, the Q ports of the four D-type flip-flops all output a 0 (low level) signal.

When the CLK port of U14: A receives a clock signal, it will output a 1 (high level) signal at Q, and the other flip-flop Q output port outputs a 0 (low level) signal, forming 0 (A) 0 ( B) 0 (C) 1 (D).

When the CLK port of U14: A receives the second clock signal again, the Q port of U14: A will output 0 (low level), the Q port of U14: B will output 1 (high level), and others Trigger Q output port outputs a 0 (low level) signal, forming 0 (A) 0 (B) 1 (C) 0 (D).

When the CLK port of U14: A receives the third clock signal again, the Q port of U14: A will output 1 (high level), the Q port of U14: B will output 1 (high level), and others The flip-flop Q output port outputs a 0 (low level) signal, forming 0 (A) 0 (B) 1 (C) 1 (D).

By analogy, the change of A, B, C, D from 0000 to 1111 can be achieved. Since the frequency of the input clock signal is 1 Hz, the signal jumps once every 1 second.

But through the above analysis of the test circuit requirements, we can know that the change range of the four signals A, B, C, D can not include 1010 (DEC: 10) ~ 1111 (DEC: 15). Therefore, two CD4017s are needed to limit the output signal range.

**CD4017 port timing diagram**

The CLK port of U16 and the CLK port of U14: A are connected in parallel, so that the CD4017 can simultaneously count the input clock signal. According to the above CD4017 port timing diagram, when the CD4017 CLK port does not receive a clock signal, the Q0 port clock is high, when a clock signal is received, the Q1 port becomes high, and the other ports are Low level. By analogy, the decimal counting function of the input clock signal is realized.

For this test circuit, because the valid range of the data is 0000-1001, when the D-type flip-flop U14: A receives the tenth pulse, it is necessary to reset four D-type flip-flops (that is, the output signal Q is set zero). How to achieve this function?

First, connect the Q9 port of U16 to the CLK port of U17, and connect the Q1 port of U17 to its own reset port MR and the reset ports of four D-type flip-flops through an inverter. Since the reset port of the D-type flip-flop is active low and the CD4017 outputs a high-level signal, the role of the inverter here is to invert the level signal, so that the CD4017 can trigger the reset of the D-type flip-flop.

When the simulation starts, U9 receives 9 clock signals, and Q9 outputs a high level. When U16 receives the 10th clock signal, the state of the Q9 port of U16 changes from high level to low level, thereby generating a clock signal and inputting it to the CLK port of U17. At this time, the Q1 port of U17 outputs a high level. This high-level signal will act on the reset port MR of U17 and the reset ports of four D-type flip-flops. The effect is: 1. U17 reset (Q0 is high level, the rest is low level). 2.4 D-type flip-flop reset (all Q ports output low level, ABCD = 0000).

Through the above circuit design, the function of limiting the four signal changes of ABCD to 0000-1001 can be realized. So far, all the requirements of the test circuit have been well solved. Next you can simulate.
