I've been designing a computer-based on the concept of the old Generation 2 computers (1401, PDP 1, etc). I'm designing the printer now and have come into the problem of splitting a 16-bit number into single-digit integers to be printed (the printer in question is similar to this concept https://hackaday.com/2013/04/11/automating-a-mechanical-typewriter/). I've read forums about using an EEPROM to do the task, but I don't have any coding experience. Could someone help me with how to create a lookup table?
