NEW PRODUCTS – Red Hex-Segment Single Digit – 2.3″ and 0.8″ Tall Common anode

1409 Lrg
Red Hex-Segment Single Digit – 2.3″ Tall Common anode. Big! Segmented! Hex! This is a huge hex-segemented digit, so big it won’t fit on a single breadboard. Luscious 2.3″ tall digits with bright red segments. Each digit comes with 16-segmented digit plus one decimal point. The other decimal point doesn’t light up – you could color it in with a black sharpie if the unlit dot is distracting. We don’t have a backpack or driver for this digit, but you can connect the common anode to about 5VDC and then connect a 200-1000 ohm resistor from each cathode to ground each segment through a 74HC595 or microcontroller pin.

In stock and shipping now.

Red Hex-Segment Single Digit – 0.8″ Tall Common anode. Mini! Segmented! Hex! This is a little hex-segemented digit that fits great into a breadboard. Cute 0.8″ tall digits with bright red segments. Each digit comes with 16-segmented digit plus one decimal point. We don’t have a backpack or driver for this digit, but you can connect the common cathode to Ground and then connect a 200-1000 ohm resistor from each anode to 3-5VDC to light up each segment through a 74HC595 or microcontroller pin.

In stock and shipping now.
