DM74LS47 BCD to 7-Segment Decoder/Driver with Open-Collector Outputs
The DM74LS47 accepts four lines of BCD (8421) input data, generates their complements internally and decodes the data with seven AND/OR gates having open-collector outputs to drive indicator segmentsdirectly. Each segment output is guaranteed to sink 24 mA in the ON (LOW) state and withstand 15V in the OFF (HIGH) state with a maximum leakage current of 250 µA. Auxiliary inputs provided blanking, lamp test and cascadable zero-suppression functions.

Note 2: BI/RBO is wire-AND logic serving as blanking input (BI) and/or ripple-blanking output(RBO). The blanking out (BI) must be open or held at a HIGH level when output functions 0 through 15 are desired, and ripple-blanking input (RBI) must be open or at a HIGH level if blanking or a decimal 0 is not desired. X = input may be HIGH or LOW. Note 3: When a LOW level is applied to the blanking input (forced condition) all segment outputs go to a HIGH level regardless of the state of any otherinput condition. Note 4: When ripple-blanking input (RBI) and inputs A0, A1, A2 and A3 are LOW level, with the lamp test input at HIGH level, all segment outputs go to a HIGH level and the ripple-blanking output (RBO) goes to a LOW level (response condition). Note 5: When the blanking input/ripple-blanking output (BI/RBO) is OPEN or held at a HIGH level, and a LOW level is applied to lamp testinput, all segment outputs go to a LOW level.
The DM74LS47 decodes the input data in the pattern indicated in the Truth Table and the segment identification illustration. If the input data is decimal zero, a LOW signal applied to the RBI blanks the display and causes a multidigit display. For example, by grounding the RBI of the highest order decoder and connecting itsBI/RBO to RBI of the next lowest order decoder, etc., leading zeros will be suppressed. Similarly, by grounding RBI of the lowest order decoder and connecting its BI/RBO to RBI of the next highest order decoder, etc., trailing zeros will be suppressed. Leading and trailing zeros can be suppressed simultaneously by using external gates, i.e.: by driving RBI of a intermediate decoder from an OR gate...
