14-Segment Alphanumeric Display - Red

We are quite familiar with seven-segment displays. We see them on our alarm clocks, ovens, and microwaves. By adding more segments to each digit you can display more than just numbers! These red 14-segment displays allow you to show off all sorts of numbers, characters, and symbols.

These common-anode displays feature four 14-segment digits and one decimal point per digit. The LEDs have a max forward voltage of 2.4V and a continuous forward current of 20mA.

  • Red Display
  • Polarity: Common Anode
  • Dimensions: 40mm x 11.95mm

14-Segment Alphanumeric Display - Red Product Help and Resources

Core Skill: Programming

If a board needs code or communicates somehow, you're going to need to know how to program or interface with it. The programming skill is all about communication and code.

3 Programming

Skill Level: Competent - The toolchain for programming is a bit more complex and will examples may not be explicitly provided for you. You will be required to have a fundamental knowledge of programming and be required to provide your own code. You may need to modify existing libraries or code to work with your specific hardware. Sensor and hardware interfaces will be SPI or I2C.

Core Skill: Electrical Prototyping

If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.

3 Electrical Prototyping

Skill Level: Competent - You will be required to reference a datasheet or schematic to know how to use a component. Your knowledge of a datasheet will only require basic features like power requirements, pinouts, or communications type. Also, you may need a power supply that?s greater than 12V or more than 1A worth of current.

    Your description says the display has one decimal point per digit, but the images and datasheet show it as having a single decimal point between the third and fourth digits, and two LEDs that can form a colon between the second and third digits. (This same error applies to some of the other colors of this display you carry.)
