  2. Segments A>D2, B>D3, C>D4, D>D5, E>D6, F>D7, G>D8, D9>DP
  3. Tactile Switch 1>A2  Count Up Switch
  4. Tactile Switch 2>A3  Count Down Switch


Note : To use this board as Arduino ATmega328 required Boot-Loader and  then Arduino programing , check the connection bellow for boot loader burning and Arduino code programing.  CN1 connector is provided for both boot loader burning and Arduino code programing.

Arduino Code Programing ( CN1) Connector

You need a USB-to-serial converter or Arduino UNO without Atmega 328 to program this board. There are pin outs on the board for programming the Atmega328P. You need to connect RX, TX, 5V and GND. Then upload the code to the board with the Arduino software.
