Digital Voltmeter LED Display

Here is another modification of a digital voltmeter. This time with 7 – Segment LED Display. These circuits seems to be more popular than other designs so I’ve decided to  publish another variant. You can find 4 variations of digital voltmeter on this site under Projects –> Digital Voltmeter. For Arduino based LCD voltmeter click here. Present version has the same characteristic as a VFD version available here. Due to multiplexing routing used to drive the LED’s you may notice a slight digit flickering during display update, however it’s barely noticeable. In the next figure you can see a design schematic.

During the testing I have found a slight shift in measured values above 10 Volts probably due to the use of standard resistors in voltage divider construction. 0.1% precision resistors should reduce this shift.
