Texas Instruments TIL306

The Texas Instruments TIL306 is an intelligent single-digit LED display featuring a built-in decade counter and BCD output. The example pictured here is a Dialco-branded variation, yet the TI logo is clearly visible through the epoxy. The inclusion of a decade counter within an LED display quickly proved to be a failure in the marketplace, and TI and other companies largely abandoned their pursuit of such products to focus their energies on BCD and ASCII based displays.
