microcontroller Digital bargraph display driver circuit

Posted on Feb 7, 2014

For a project I need to display a progress bar of the activity performed by my MCU. For this purpose I am going to use a bargraph display, but the problem is that bargraph display driver driver IC LM3914 uses analog input where as MCU produces a digital output. How can I display a value on bargraph using digital input instead of analog The bargra

ph should display values from lower to higher and higher to lower. Schematics will be highly appreciated. I only have two data pins available on uC (PIC16F84a) to drive a Bargraph display, and IO expander will increase the cost of system. I tried IC 4017 for the purpose, but it provides only one ON pin at a time.
