Wemos and 4067 example

The 4067 was one of the IC’s that I wanted to connect up to various microcontrollers as it looked extremely useful, here is a quick description from one of the datasheets with an overview of the functionality

The HEF4067B is a 16-channel analog multiplexer/demultiplexer with four address inputs (A0 to A3), an active LOW enable input (E), sixteen independent inputs/outputs (Y0 to Y15) and a common input/output (Z). The device contains sixteen bidirectional analog switches, each with one side connected to an independent input/output (Y0 to Y15) and the other side connected to the common input/output (Z). With E LOW, one of the sixteen switches is selected (low-impedance ON-state) by A0 to A3. All unselected switches are in the high-impedance OFF-state. With E HIGH all switches are in the high-impedance OFF-state, independent of A0 to A3. The analog inputs/outputs (Y0 to Y15 and Z) can swing between VDD as a positive limit and VSS as a negative limit. VDD to VSS may not exceed 15 V.

Here is the pinout of the 4067


You can see depending on the state of pins S0 – S3 determines the output channel pin that is used. So if S0 to S3 are 0 then Channel 0 which is Pin 9 is selected



Here is a schematic, in this example we only connected 8 sets of LEDs and resistors but its easy to add another 8 from X8 to X15



The code example only uses 8 LEDs

[codesyntax lang=”cpp”]

const int channel[] = {D5, D6, D7, D8};

//the output pin - mux input
const int outputPin = D0;

void setup() 
  // set up all pins as output:
    pinMode(D0, OUTPUT);
    pinMode(D5, OUTPUT);
    pinMode(D6, OUTPUT);
    pinMode(D7, OUTPUT);
    pinMode(D8, OUTPUT);

void loop() 
  //iterate through the first 8 channels of the multiplexer (change to 16 if you 
  //have 16 LEDs or outputs connected)
  for (int muxChannel = 0; muxChannel < 8; muxChannel++) 
    //set the channel pins based on the channel you want
    //LED on - high - 100 milliseconds delay

void muxWrite(int whichChannel) 
  for (int inputPin = 0; inputPin < 4; inputPin++) 
    int pinState = bitRead(whichChannel, inputPin);
    // turn the pin on or off:
