    Is there a 7-segment LED driver IC that will do 0-F, preferably with a
    latch? Every chip I find is BCD and only does 0-9.

  2. Maxim, maybe.
    I've gone over to the STP16cp05 serial constant current led driver,
    quite nice, easy to drive once you get the look up table written

  3. I almost hate to say it, but it would be cheaper to use a PIC these
    days. $2 or less, after the (small) software NRE of course. Much
    better long term availability too.

    And you could talk to them via i2c to boot. Looks like the route I'm
    going to end up taking, thanks!
