    According to the user manual I think as long as they are common cathode they should work just fine. here is the link to the manual just click on the downloads next to simple its in there

    Hi,

    I use the OP Display-card.
    Till now I use them for my MCP and I will use them for the Comms and NAVs too.
    With the cards I use of course common cathode 7-segment displays.
    I built in the SC36-11YWA with 9mm height.
    I would say that the sc52 is to high. Also I cannot say if they work with the master card too.
    Im very sattisfied with this constelation.It works fine.

    I looked at the spec sheet for these and they are electronically compatible with the OC displays card itself, but I didn't check to see if the pin footprint is compatible with the displays digits pcbs, if not you might have to make your own.
