This is great. It is about at the level I need. This device would be used to debug the development - not part of the final design. I plan to send out 3 digit status and "location" within the program execution, so just a simple set of 3 shift registers and 3 bytes shifted out to drive segments to create the numbers should show the status. Later I may find a use for a small graphics display if I can find a driver IC that will talk SPI.
Thanks for the suggestion.
