High Performance CMOS 5 x 7 Alphanumeric Displays

Currently Viewing:

The HCMS-2915 is a high performance, easy to use dot matrix display driven by on-board CMOS ICs. The display can be directly interfaced with a microprocessor, thus eliminating the need for cumbersome interface components. The serial IC interface allows higher character count information displays with a minimum of data lines. A variety of colors, font heights, and character counts gives designers a wide range of product choices for their specific applications and the easy to read 5 x 7 pixel format allows the display of uppercase, lower case, Katakana, and custom user-defined characters. This display is stackable in the x- and y-directions, making it ideal for high character count displays.
