I know this is going to sound like a kludge....but what if you took one
of these cheap "give-away" calculators and simply replaced the press of
the buttons with output bits from the PIC or STAMP?
That is, you could "press" the buttons by connecting some sort of
"decoder" on stamp outputs, and wiring the outputs up in place of the
push-buttons. One of the outputs could be the Clear button....so that
you could "clear" the display.
I told you it was a hack....but the display is essentially FREE!
