'[BUY]: Vacuum fluorescent displays'

Hi,

I am looking for a VFD display, preferably somewhere in Finland :) Something
along the lines of 20x4 characters, i.e. pretty similar to the cheap LCD
displays they sell everywhere, except I would like VFD :)

Matrix-Orbital(.com) sells them with some add-on stuff to allow you to
program it serially (they also add keyboard adapters? why?) but they're
priced a little hight ($137) which would defeat the purpose of the otherwise
low-cost project. Also, I don't need the serial interface or any of the other
extra's, just a nice VFD display :)

AFAIK Bebek and RadioDuo (both in Finland) don't have any, or at least not
advertised, anyone know where I might have more luck?

Kind regards, and thanks in advance
Dennis Noordsij

While my knowledge of electronics sources in Finland is next to nil, don't
expect to get such VFD displays for anything like the price of an LCD display.
They cost 10-20 times as much, and are quite power hungry. Try surplus
sources, you might get lucky. They're used a lot in pay phones in North Am.

Still expensive but I have seen more like 2-4 times as much from what i have
seen by poking around.

Not in Finland (sorry) but it is a source:
http://www.digikey.com/scripts/us/dksus.dll?Criteria?Ref=41073&Cat=21431096

>and are quite power hungry.

When comparing with many similar sized LCD's backlights being on, the
Noritake VFD's take less power.  I don't know about Futaba but I would
assume that they would be competitive.

Hello Jeff,

I am interested in how to get those VFD's as well.

So i checked your link/search and it has expired at
Digi-key so i went to look for my self but could not
find the VFD's you were talking about.

No futuba or Noritakes.

So if any one else knows a source ........

grtz,


Simon

Well, Digikey charges about 5 * as much for LCD displays as some sources,
so I think we agree. ;-)  I have yet to find a 2 x 16 display for a cheap
price (like $10 or $20 in 100's), I'd love to though.

Try this link: http://info.digikey.com/T013/V5/793.pdf

$50 to $85 each in 10's.

Hello ST,
Assuming you are in Europe, send you request to KILLspamyyoshidaKILLspamspamnoritake.de
at Noritake Munich, I have had excellent relations with them.

  I've been testing a Futaba 20 x 2 VFD, P/N NA202SD01BA2. It's actually
easier to talk to than the standard Hitachi parts while it's nearly 100%
compatible. It draws 350ma typical and 450ma max.

Try http://www.distel.co.uk they have some, although to get some of the prices you
have to email them.

I have recently done some work with a Samsung 20 x 4 display and adapted Pic
Basic Pro so that I could use the LCDOUT command to send messages to the
VFD.  The display was $75 US.  It had dimming and a very large character
library.  the part number was 20S401DA1.  Contact Samsung SDI and they will
send samples.
