Four Digit - Seven Segment Display - Red (display 7 segment red)

This lovely little (14.2mm) seven segment display provides excellent segment uniformity and is highly visible up to seven meters away. It's ultra bright, and provides great readability even in bright ambient light!

It has four digits and a decimal point on each digit, designed for numeric output, so you can use it to add a clock, timer or counter into your next project.

These displays are multiplexed, common-cathode. What that means it that you can use a 74HC595 or just 8 microcontroller pins if you can spare them to control the 8 anodes (7-seg + decimal) at about ~15mA each, and then connect NPN transistors or a TPIC6B595 to the cathodes to sink the 8*20mA = ~120mA maximum per digit.

This is an ultra bright RED colour.

Specifications

  • 100mcd
  • 14.2mm (0.56") digit height
  • Color: red (630nm)
  • Common cathode display
  • Maximum power dissipation per segment: 66mW
  • Maximum pulse peak forward current per segment (1/10th duty cycle, 0.1ms pulse width): 100mA
  • Maximum forward current per segment: 20mA
  • Maximum reverse voltage: 5V
  • Maximum reverse current: 20µA
  • Typical forward voltage: 2.1V at 20mA
  • Maximum forward voltage: 2.5V at 20mA
  • Operating temperature range: -30°C - +70°C
  • Typical luminous intensity: 20mcd

VGA 666 Adapter Board For Raspberry Pi 3 Model B 2B B+ A+ (2C4 vga board red soldered)
Description:

It is a neat and very useful solution for using a VGA display/monitor with your Raspberry Pi and is cheaper than an HDMI to VGA adapter or similar. The VGA connection is driven natively in hardware over the GPIO pins (using a parallel interface) and uses around the same CPU load as the HDMI connection on board. It is capable of displaying 1080p60 VGA video with no CPU load. It is also possible to drive this interface at the same time as the HDMI connection, so a dual screen set up is also possible.

This add-on board uses all but 6 of the GPIO pins so it may not be possible to use other add-on boards at the same time as the VGA adapter. You should disable all of the GPIO pin's function so that it can work properly.

We strongly recommend that you use 800x600 resolution. Higher resolution will slow down your Pi and use more RAM.

Features:

- Support for Raspberry Pi 3B / 2B / B+ / A+
- The VGA output supports resolution:from 640 x 480 up to 1920 x 1024 at 60fps.
- With 6 bits per channel you have a maximum of 262144 colours.
- No soldering required.
- Easy to setup.
- Easy to configure.
- Dimension: 64.00mm x 32.3mm
- Net weight: 16.5g

Note:

Raspberry Pi main board is not included.

Blinkt! (2B3 Blinkt)

Eight super-bright RGB LED indicators that are ideal for adding visual notifications to your Raspberry Pi without breaking the bank!

Inspired by Alex Ellis' work with his Raspberry Pi Zero Docker Cluster, we developed these boards for him to use as status indicators. Blinkt! offers eight APA102 pixels in the smallest (and cheapest) form factor to plug straight onto your Raspberry Pi.

Each pixel on Blinkt! is individually controllable and dimmable allowing you to create gradients, pulsing effects, or just flash them on and off like crazy. The data and clock lines are connected to GPIO #23 and #24 respectively but for simplicity you can just use our Python library to drive them.

Features

  • Eight APA102 RGB LEDs
  • Individually controllable pixels
  • Sits directly on top of your Pi in a tiny footprint
  • Fits inside most Pi cases
  • Doesn't interfere with PWM audio
  • Blinkt! pinout
  • Compatible with Raspberry Pi 3, 2, B+, A+, Zero, and Zero W
  • Python library
  • Comes fully assembled

Software

Our Blinkt! Python library will have you blasting out rainbows in two shakes of a unicorn's tail! There's a stack of examples too, from binary clocks to cheerlights and flickering candles to Larson scanners!

Notes

  • Be careful to plug in your Blinkt! the correct way round, it has curves on the top that match the corners of your Raspberry Pi.
  • The dimensions of Blinkt! are 65mm long x 8mm wide x 8.5mm thick (thickness includes header and pixels).

We featured Blinkt! on a special episode of Bilge Tank where we tried to come up with as many different code examples as possible in one morning. Check it out below.

Adafruit PiTFT 2.2" HAT Mini Kit - 320x240 2.2" TFT - No Touch (1B3 Ada no touch 2.2)

This product contains only the display. Raspberry Pi, case and cables are shown for illustration purposes only and not included.


The cute PiTFT got even more adorable with this little primary display for Raspberry Pi in HAT form! It features a 2.2" display with 320x240 16-bit color pixels. The HAT uses the high speed SPI interface on the Pi and can use the mini display as a console, X window port, displaying images or video etc. Best of all it plugs right in on top of your Model A+ or B+ and fits into our case quite nicely.

It's designed to plug directly onto the Raspberry Pi 2 or Raspberry Pi 1 Model A+ or B+ . While not specifically designed for Pi Model A or B,you can use it with A/B if you solder in an extra-tall 2x13 header (not included) instead of the included 2x20 header.

This design uses the hardware SPI pins (SCK, MOSI, MISO, CE0, CE1) as well as GPIO #25. All other GPIO are unused and are available on a 25-pin long breakout line. Since we had a tiny bit of space, there's 4 flat tactile switches wired to four GPIOs, that you can use if you want to make a basic user interface. For example, you can use one as a power on/off button.

Comes as a fully assembled display PCB and an additional 2x20 GPIO header. Some light soldering is required to attach the 2x20 GPIO header to the HAT but it's fast and easy for anyone with a soldering iron and solder. You can also swap the plain female header we have with a 'stacky' type that lets you plug in a hat or GPIO cable on top or a slim ultra-low-profile header.

Technical Details

  • Board Dimensions: 65mm x 57mm x 6mm / 2.6" x 2.2" x 0.2"
  • Screen Dimensions: 55mm x 40mm / 2.2" x 1.6"

Tutorials

To make it super easy for use: Adafruit have created a custom kernel package based of off Notro's awesome framebuffer work, so you can install it over your existing Raspbian (or derivative) images in just a few commands. Their tutorial series shows you how to install the software, play small videos, or display images such as from your PiCam and more!

Unicorn HAT (3B4 Unicorn HAT)

What's going to protect your beloved Raspberry Pi from an onslaught of rainbow-coloured fusion? That's right, it's Unicorn HAT.

Sporting a matrix of 64 (8 x 8) RGB LEDs and powered directly from the Pi, this is the most compact pocket aurora available.

Unicorn HAT provides a wash of controllable colour that is ideal for mood-lighting, 8x8 pixel art, persistence of vision effects, status indications, or just blasting colour into your surroundings.

The MagPi said that Unicorn HAT was "one of the coolest HATs around"

Features

  • 64 RGB LEDs (WS2812B)
  • LED data driven via DMA over PWM
  • Unicorn HAT pinout
  • Compatible with Raspberry Pi 3, 2, B+, A+, Zero, and Zero W
  • Python library
  • Comes fully assembled

Software

We've put together a Unicorn HAT Python library to make it a breeze to use, including lots of beautiful examples of what it can do.

Notes

  • Warning: WS2812 LEDs are bright enough to cause eye pain, do not look at them directly when brightly lit. We recommend the use of a diffuser.
  • Photo-sensitivity warning: flashing, strobing, and patterns of lights may cause epileptic seizures. Always take care and immediately stop using if you feel unwell (dizziness, nausea, affected vision, eye twitching, disorientation).
  • Power: Unicorn HAT requires a >2A microUSB power supply for your Pi. We recommend the official Raspberry Pi power supply.
  • Compatibility (audio): as Unicorn HAT uses PWM and GPIO18, it will interfere with analogue audio playback (random colour patterns and flickering). HDMI should work just fine!

Pi Supply Gert VGA 666 Hardware VGA for Raspberry Pi (Gert VGA)

Description:

The  Gert VGA 666 (6 bits per colour channel, hence 666) is a  breakout/add-on board for the Raspberry Pi Model B+ (will not work with  Model A/B as the additional GPIO pins on the Model B+ are required). It  is an open source hardware design recently released publicly by Gert van  Loo who was one of the hardware engineers that was instrumental in the  initial design of the original Raspberry Pi (also one of the chip  architects on the BCM2835 chip at the heart of the Raspberry Pi) and  someone that many of you may have spoken to at Raspberry Jams or on the  Raspberry Pi forums. It is a neat and very useful solution for using a  VGA screen/monitor with your Raspberry Pi and is far cheaper than an  HDMI to VGA adapter or similar. The VGA connection is driven natively in  hardware over the GPIO pins (using a parallel interface) and uses  around the same CPU load as the HDMI connection on board. It is capable  of displaying 1080p60 VGA video with no CPU load. It is also possible to  drive this interface at the same time as the HDMI connection, so a dual  screen setup is also possible. This add-on was not possible on the  Model A and B pis, because not all of the required pins had been brought  out to the GPIO header. Yet another awesome upgrade that the Model B+ has allowed for!

Please note: this add-on on board uses all but 6 of the GPIO pins on the Model B+ Raspberry Pi so it may not be possible to use  other add on boards at the same time as the VGA adapter. Why a kit? We love electronics kits for a multitude of reasons - they are fun to  put together, you get a sense of achievement at the end of it, they are  great for learning about soldering and electronics and many many more  reasons... At Pi Supply we are quite keen on the whole education and fun  aspect of the Raspberry Pi and computing and electronics in general, so  we feel that a kit is much more worthwhile to all of our backers.  However, you don't need to be a soldering god or an electronics pro to  put our kits together - Gert has made this simple enough even for  absolute beginners to put together. The images in this project show  surface mount resistors, however, for the purposes of the kit we will be  supplying all through hole components. There was also a concern about  EMC (electromagnetic compatibility) regulations which could cause a  problem if made as a fully assembled board. This regulation does not  cover home made electronics and so a kit makes more sense for this  reason as well.

Specifications:

  • Uses all but 6 of the  GPIO pins on the Model B+ Raspberry Pi
  • 6 bits per colour channel, hence 666
  • Will not work with Raspberry Pi 1 Model A/B
  • Open source hardware design
  • BCM2835 chip
  • VGA Connector

Contents:

  • 1 x Gert VGA 666 PCB
  • 1 x 40 pin GPIO header connector
  • 1 x 15 pin female VGA connector

Adafruit PiTFT Plus 320x240 2.8" TFT + Capacitive Touchscreen(40 pin) (1B4 2.8 display touch cap 40pin)

Is this not the cutest little display for the Raspberry Pi? It features a 2.8" display with 320x240 16-bit color pixels and a capacitive touch overlay. That's right, instead of a resistive touchscreen, which requires a fingernail or stylus, you can now use a fingerpad.

The screen looks much nicer, with a black bezel and glass overlay.

This updated design fits perfectly onto the Pi Zero, Pi 3, Pi 2 or Model A+, B+! (Any Pi with a 2x20 connector) Not for use with an old Pi 1 with 2x13 connector. This version also has all 40 pins GPIO pins brought out so you can connect a 40-pin GPIO cable underneath.

The display and touchscreen uses the hardware I2C Pins (SDA & SCL), SPI pins (SCK, MOSI, MISO, CE0) as well as GPIO #25 and #24. All other GPIO are unused and you can still share the I2C pins with sensors, LED drivers, etc. Since we had a tiny bit of space, there's 4 slim tactile switches wired to four GPIOs, that you can use if you want to make a basic user interface. For example, you can use one as a power on/off button.

Use it for console access or easily pop up X11 onto the PiTFT for a mini monitor, although its rather small at 320x240. Instead, we recommend using PyGame or other SDL-drawing programs to write onto the frame buffer.

Raspberry Pi computer and enclosure not included! As of July 22nd, 2015 this display comes fully assembled with tactile switches too

Adafruit Monochrome 0.96" 128x64 OLED graphic display (1B3 Ada OLED 0.96" display)

Cables not included

These displays are small, only about 1" diameter, but very readable due to the high contrast of an OLED display.

This display is made of 128x64 individual white OLED pixels, each one is turned on or off by the controller chip. Because the display makes its own light, no backlight is required. This reduces the power required to run the OLED and is why the display has such high contrast; we really like this miniature display for its crispness!

This breakout can be used with either an SPI or I2C interface - selectable by soldering two jumpers on the back. The design is completely 5V-ready, with an onboard regulator and built in boost converter. It's easier than ever to connect directly to your 3V or 5V microcontroller without needing any kind of level shifter!

TheRaspberryPiGuy has done an *excellent* video on getting this display running with your Pi.

Guy Carpenter has a guide for using OLEDs like this one with the Raspberry Pi it's well worth a read!

Using this display with a Raspberry Pi? Check out Adafruit's SSD1306 OLED display guide.

Adafruit have provided a detailed tutorial and example code in the form of an Arduino library for text and graphics. You'll need a microcontroller with more than 1K of RAM since the display must be buffered.

On the Raspberry Pi, Adafruit now have a Python library available that works with these displays in both i2c and SPI mode.

You can download the Adafruit SSD1306 OLED display Arduino library from github which comes with example code. The library can print text, bitmaps, pixels, rectangles, circles and lines. It uses 1K of RAM since it needs to buffer the entire display but its very fast! The code is simple to adapt to any other microcontroller.

TECHNICAL DETAILS

Dimensions:

  • PCB: 38mm x 29mm (1.5" x 1")
  • Screen: 25mm x 14mm
  • Thickness: 4mm
  • Weight: 8.5g
  • Display current draw is completely dependent on your usage: each OLED LED draws current when on so the more pixels you have lit, the more current is used. They tend to draw ~20mA or so in practice but for precise numbers you must measure the current in your usage circuit.
  • This board/chip uses I2C 7-bit address between 0x3C-0x3D, selectable with jumpers
