I’m looking for a card to interface 7 segment displays.
I know that OC offers them but I don’t want to spend money for expansion card then the master card and then the display card,when I need just the display card really.
So is there anything out there that would alow simply to connect several 7 segment displays to the card ,and then the card it self to USB?


Also I was thinking of using VFD display as a alternative to LCD,becouse characters in VFD display are biger,closer in size to & segment display.
My question is then can I use VFD display with open cocpit LCD display card

Hello

Check this post: http://www.mycockpit.org/forums/showthread.php/15891-VFD-display

USBLcd from OC is compliant to the HD44780 standard and your VFD have to as well.
BTW, you'll find a nice review of USBLcd written by Jack here: http://www.mutleyshangar.com/reviews/jack/lcd/lcd.htm
