Adafruit 14-segment LED Alphanumeric Backpack
By popular request, you can now get our 14-segment LED backpacks without the LEDs! These backpacks feature an HT16K33 I2C LED driver, they're simple and easy to use - you can use our very nice library for the backpacks to get running in under half an hour, with numbers and letters displaying. If you've been eyeing matrix displays but hesitated because of the complexity, this is the solution you've been looking for!
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!
Comes with a fully tested and assembled LED backpack & 4-pin header. Some light soldering is required to attach the header and, of course, the display.
A set of two 2-digit 0.54" tall alphanumeric displays are not included, but we have lots of options in the store! We only know that this backpack works with the ones we stock. Other displays may not work, we don't guarantee 'em.
