Vacuum Fluorescent Display & Teensyduino

Teensyvfddemo

Getting Started- Vacuum Fluorescent Display & Teensyduino | A work in progress….

This is a quick tutorial on getting a VFD working with an Arduino (or Arduino equivalent system). VFDs are beautiful devices with a wonderful hexagonal mesh of wires and this lovely green/blue glow. Operating at around 5V, they offer a nice alternative to high voltage Nixie tubes, while still retaining a lot of the charm.

This tutorial will show you how to connect a Arduino-like device to a VFD display as well as a basic program to display text.

Uses teensy, and VFD display from our shop! Nice looking tutorial w/fritzing :)
