New Noritake VFD samples (choice of 114x16 or 16x2)

Recommended Posts

Anybody gotten theirs yet? Friend of mine did and he said that he got the character display instead of the graphic. Musta run out quickly!

 

Mine is due to arrive today, can't wait!

I just recieved a 144x16 as a POTM prize.

Even though they're a graphical type, there is a decent amount of overhead required to just to set/clear single pixels. It appears as if displaying text is more what they're designed for.

 

That being said, they seem to have some custom commands to display bitmaps, which seem pretty powerful.

Yeah I've been reviewing the datasheet on this little guy and it does seem more text oriented but their LCD bitmap program is really useful and neat. Cant wait to do my first fan blade animation for the new climate control in the house... Should probably go work on that.

 

If anyone form Noritake reads this, the booklet that comes with the display gives links to download Arduino sample code and such but when you type it in only goes to a dead blog site.
