Abstract : The patent describes a five-bit binary word displayed as an alpha-numeric tens digit and an alpha-numeric units digit on adjacent seven-segment display tubes. The five-bit binary word is processed by a tens recognition system in order to obtain the tens digit corresponding to the value of the binary word. The tens digit is then converted to binary form and is displayed as a tens digit and is also substracted from portions of the original five-bit binary word in order to obtain the value of the units digit in binary form. This value is then displayed as the units segment.
