I am from a mobile development background and very new to Arduino. I am trying to make an electronic cricket score board. The logic is simple.
Score - 888 (3 Digits) - I have implemented this logic using shift registers. Three pin used from Arduino Uno and this is working fine.
Overs - 88 (2 Digits) - Need to find a best way to implement it
Wickets - 8 (1 Digit) - Need to find a best way to implement it
Now I need to add Wickets and Overs to the logic. I think there are two ways to do it.
One is passing data from Score shift registers. I think this way is a bit complicated in logic level. But if this is a good way, then great.
The other is, connect to Arduino Uno pins directly rather than getting information from score shift registers. There are only few pins.
Please Note: I need to print this design in PCB
This might be a basic question. But I would like to the know which way is efficient, and its advantages. If both are not, I would like to the know the best one.
