Noritake 24x6 character VFD Free Samples

Recommended Posts

I had some fun with this display. I crafted up a driver in C# and ran it under Mono on my RaspberryPi.

 

I managed to stream some data at the custom RAM characters to get a spinning globe animation and a couple of "loader" animations. I wrote up a crude little gif converter.

I also had a ton of fun attempting to dump the firmware on the microcontroller which I can only assume I was successful at (based on the nice strings in the image :]).
