Default Digital potentiometer with readout

I am looking for a digital potentiometer design for volume control.
This design is an example of the kind of circuit I am looking for (page 5 and 6):
http://www.edn.com/contents/images/30603di.pdf
What I like about it is it’s simplicity. But the problem is that it lacks any kind of readout. So you have no indication at all in which position the “wiper” is after turning the rotary encoder.
Did a lot of searching, but didn’t find a design which displays the wiper setting.
Any ideas?

Peter

You can always use a counter...

Volume control for audio with this AD5220?
Why not MAX5440? http://www.maxim-ic.com/quick_view2.cfm/qv_pk/4065/t/al

Thank you audioDIYer,

I will study that datasheet.

But still there is no convenient readout.

More ideas to take a closer look at?

Peter

Using a microcontroller is the simplest way, but of course you need to be able to write code.

And that is my problem, I am afraid!
I am an “analog guy”.

MAX5486 with up/down buttons has LED driver. The 5440 mentioned above uses a rotary encoder. They are surface mount, however.

you can do this with a DS1802 (Dallas Semi is part of Maxim) -- using buttons. The buttons can also be wired to a counter which drives a LED Display Driver. Search DS1802

Didn't Elektor offer a kit?

Does anybody know an existing design, or do I have to invent the wheel again?

I think all you need has been said here.

Just use some TTL or CMOS chips to read clock and U/D for displaying on leds.

No need to invent, just do some research (or search)...

If your looking for a complete kit, this is the only one I am aware of that has the option for a LCD module.
