Dual Alphanumeric Displays – 0.54″ Digit Heights – Packs of 2White / Yellow / Yellow-Green / Pure Green

Display, elegantly, 012345678 or 9! Gaze, hypnotized, at ABCDEFGHIJKLM – well these can display the whole alphabet. You get the point. These are nice, bright 14-segment alphanumeric displays that can show letters and numbers in beautiful hues. They’re super bright and designed for viewing from distances up to 23 feet (7 meters) away. Digits have seven segments on a black surfaces and we give you a set of two alphanumeric displays in a pack so you can make a clock or a four letter word.

There are nine pins per side on these, so 18 pins total, with 0.1″ spacing so you can easily plug it into a breadboard with one row on each side for wiring it up. Note that these may not color-match our other 7-segment displays due to process-differences.

These products are just the two alphanumeric displays!

Like our other LED backpacks, these are end-to-end stackable and by soldering the address jumpers on the back you can have up to 8 backpacks all sharing the same two I2C wires!

These products come with:

  • 2 x Ultra-Bright Alphanumeric Displays – 0.54″ Digit Height for 4 digits total
  • 1 x Adafruit 14-segment LED Alphanumeric Backpack
  • 1 x 5-pin header

A bit of soldering is required to attach the matrix onto the backpack but its very easy to do and only takes about 5 minutes. Of course, in classic Adafruit fashion, we also have a detailed tutorial showing you how to solder, wire and control the display. If you’ve been eying alphanumeric displays but hesitated because of the complexity, this is the solution you’ve been looking for!

  1. have the BIG RED 1.2" high seven-segment LED displays… When I take a picture of a number displayed (with a digital camera) some of the segments are ‘greyed-out’… – my GUESS is that there are two LEDs in each segment (the amp draw is HUGE) and that they ‘alternate’
    (probably 60 times a second (even though they are DC) – and the digital camera’s shutter catches the darn thing when some segments are un-lit because the digital camera has a really fast shutter-speed?

    ANYONE got any idea what i can do to get better pictures? – if you want the image I can send it to you…
