'[EE]: Great (Cheap) LCD displays Active Surplus in'

Hi Folks,

I just discovered a really cool 4 Digit (7 Segment) LCD display here in
Toronto for $2.00 (Canadian) at Active Surplus (South side of Queen Street
West between University and Spadina).  It's the place with the mechanical
gorilla out front nine months of the year.

Their part number is "OPTREX IM50240".  The interface is a three serial
shift along with a 50% duty cycle clock (30 - 200Hz).  Thirty five bits are
shifted in for the display.

I'm putting this up here because of the cost and how easy it looks to
interface with.

If you want to order one, check out Active Surplus's website at:

http://www.activesurplus.com/index.htm

If this is not the correct forum for this type of information, let me know
and I won't do it again.

Thanks Myke, i'm interested in ordering some but
their web page doesn't have it?? All I get for the
different products is a blurb that they have "all
my needs" but no product listings??

I was disappointed in their web page as well - that's why I gave the part
number *they* know it as.  I really just gave the web page for the
information on where to order it.

The reason why I put it up was that if you have a need for a 4 digit (7
Segment) LCD, this one is really easy to work with and very cheap.

       Yes, I purchased a few of them, quite neat, I wish they had other kinds
though! (They do have others but they don't have the data sheets so they
aren't worth as much) Oh well, TTYL
