analogue-digital cmos chips? Answered

Is there a chip like the LM3914 that takes an analogue voltage input and turns it into a digital signal? (preferably BCD, but decimal is fine too), but without the inverting output, so I can use it with other CMOS chips? I basically just want a chip that takes an analogue signal, and based on a threshold, divides it up into a decimal (or binary) signal. Specifically, I want to use it with a thermistor and a 7-segment display to make a digital thermometer.

What you are looking for is an Analogue to digital converter. Yes, they exist as separate components.

For what you want though, you might consider on the of the classical "digital panel meter" ICs, like the 7106.

Do you know, I think too many people have forgotten the old 7106 - they just buy meters off of Ebay.
