    Hi everyone!

    I would like to make a gear indicator in my car with a 16 segment display (PSA05-11EWA). This show "1-5" + "N" + "R".
    The common anode is the problem. I think the 4543IC is good for me, but I don't know how connect this with the display. If it works then it will show hopefully the numbers "1-5". The "N" and "R" with the old analog system (∞ diodes :D) when the ic is turned off, so that not problem.
    The point is the ic and the connect because I don't have enough place in the clock (ø70mm).

    Could you help?
    Sorry for the english and thanks in advance... Thomas

    Please do not bother to reword the question. It will not fly under the radar.
