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

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. The highly resolution will slow down your Pi and use more RAM.

Feature:

- 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! (2B2 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 (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)
PLEASE NOTE: SOLDERING REQUIRED - Loose componets kit form
Raspberry Pi Not Included


The Gert VGA 666 (6 bits per colour channel, hence 666) is a breakout/add on board for the Raspberry Pi Model B+,Pi 2 B and Pi 3 B (will not work with Model A/B as the additional GPIO pins 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. This was announced on the Raspberry Pi website and the full design files, schematics and other details are available onGitHub.

The Raspberry Pi has an HDMI port to connect a display. If your monitor only has VGA, you have to use an adapter. Because this requires a digital-to-analogue conversion, those adapters can be quite pricey, and they can draw lots of power. So our friend Gert van Loo  has created a VGA adapter that uses the Pi’s GPIO.

This wasn’t possible on the Model A or B, but now the B+ and newer models exposes 40 GPIO pins, there’s more to play with. As well as just allowing you to connect a VGA monitor natively, it also means you can use it as a secondary monitor alongside HDMI. And unlike composite video, the DPI interface can be run independent of the HDMI. The software for dual screens is still under development, but we expect that to arrive in the next couple of weeks. Running two screens at maximum resolution will consume SDRAM bandwidth, and is yet to be tested. (And there’s a catch: as the board uses most of your GPIO pins, you lose access to them.)

The VGA output supports the same resolution as your HDMI one: from 640 x 480 up to 1920 x 1024 at 60fps. At the highest resolution the pixel quality is almost as good as HDMI. The adapter uses a simple resistor ladder network as a digital-to-analogue converter, so the colour quality depends on how well-balanced your resistors are. There is slight colour banding, and with 6 bits per channel you have a maximum of 262144 colours.

Dom has been working on the software side and the new DPI (read: VGA) driver software has been added to the latest release.

RGB LED Matrix Panel 32 x 32 6mm pitch (1B1 RGB 32x32 panel)

Bring a little bit of Times Square into your home with this sweet RGB LED matrix panel.

These panels are normally used to make video walls, you can see them on the sides of busses and bus stops, to display animations or short video clips. We thought they looked really cool so we picked up a few boxes of them from a factory. They have 1024 bright RGB LEDs arranged in a 32x32 grid on the front. On the back there is a PCB with a set of dual IDC connectors (one input, one output: in theory you can chain these together) and 12 16-bit latches that allow you to drive the display with a 1:16 scan rate.

These displays are technically 'chainable' - connect one output to the next input - but our Arduino example code does not support this (yet). It requires a high speed processor and more RAM than the Arduino has!

These panels require 13 digital pins (6 bit data, 7 bit control) and a good 5V supply, up to 4A per panel.

Comes with: a single 32x32 RGB panel, one IDC cable and a power cable. If we happen to get them from the factory we also include 4 mounting screws and mini-magnets (it appears these are often mounted on a magnetic base).

Keep in mind that these displays are designed to be driven by FPGAs or other high speed processors: they do not have built in PWM control of any kind. Instead, you're supposed to redraw the screen over and over to 'manually' PWM the whole thing. On a 16 MHz arduino, we managed to squeeze 12-bit color (4096 colors) with 40% CPU usage but this display would really shine if driven by any FPGA, CPLD, Propeller, XMOS or other high speed multi-core controller. The good news is that the display is pre-white balanced with nice uniformity so if you turn on all the LEDs it's not a particularly tinted white.

Adafruit have a full wiring diagrams and working Arduino library code with examples from drawing pixels, lines, rectangles, circles and text. You'll get your color blasting within the hour! On an Arduino, you'll need 13 digital pins, and about 1600 bytes of RAM to buffer the 12-bit color image. At this time we do not have wiring documentation for the MEGA.

Please note! These panels are remainder stock from factories that make huge light boards. For that reason, the look and size might vary from batch to batch, even though the basic operation, codebase and tutorial is the same.

TECHNICAL DETAILS

We don't have a spec or datasheet at this time. However, these are the specifications from the factory

  • Dimensions: 190.5mm x 190.5mm x 14mm / 7.5" x 7.5" x 0.55"
  • Panel weight with IDC cables and power cable: 357.51g
  • 5V regulated power input, 4A max (all LEDs on)
  • 5V data logic level input
  • 2000 mcd LEDs on 6mm pitch
  • 1/16 scan rate
  • Indoor display, 150 degree visibility
  • Displays are 'chainable' - connect one output to the next input - but our Arduino example code does not support this yet

Adafruit RGB Matrix HAT + RTC for Raspberry Pi - Mini Kit (ada rgb matrix hat)

Please note: Raspberry Pi and LED matrix not included.

You can now create a dazzling display with your Raspberry Pi Model A+/B+/Pi 2 or Pi 3 with the Adafruit RGB Matrix HAT.

This HAT plugs into your Pi and makes it super easy to control RGB matrices and create a colorful scrolling display or mini LED wall with ease.

This HAT is our finest to date, full of some really great circuitry. Let me break it down for you:

  • Simple design - plug in power, plug in IDC cable, run our Python code!
  • Power protection circuitry - you can plug a 5V 4A wall adapter into the HAT and it will automatically protect against negative, over or under-voltages! Yay for no accidental destruction of your setup.
  • Onboard level shifters to convert the RasPi's 3.3V to 5.0V logic for clean and glitch free matrix driving
  • DS1307 Real Time Clock can keep track of time for the Pi even when it is rebooted or powered down, to make for really nice time displays

Works with 16x32, 32x32 or 32x64 RGB LED Matrices with HUB75 connections. You can even chain multiple matrices together for a longer display, you can chain as many as you like but the bigger the display the harder it is on the Pi so keep that in mind! We don't recommend more than 32x128 pixel setups

Please note: this HAT is only for use with HUB75 type RGB Matrices. Not for use with NeoPixel, DotStar, or other 'addressable' LEDs.

Each order comes with a HAT PCB with all surface mount parts assembled, a 2x20 female socket connector, a 2 pin terminal block, and a 2x8 IDC socket connector. A CR1220 coin cell is not included to make air shipping easier, please order one separately if you do not have one and would like to use the real time clock.

A 5V power supply is also required, not included, for powering the matrix itself. The Pi cannot do it due to the high currents. To calculate the max current of your matrix set up, multiply the width of all the chained matrix by 0.12 : A 32 pixel wide matrix needs 32*0.12 = 3.85A so pick up a 5V 4A power supply.

Some light soldering is required to attach the headers to your Pi. A soldering iron and solder are required, but it's not a complex soldering job and most beginners can do it in about 15 minutes.

Check out Adafruits full tutorial with schematics, wiring diagrams, instructions and a Python library so you can get drawing fast!

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

Includes a 16x3 character LCD display, 6-zone RGB LED backlight, bar graph, and six capacitive touch buttons all in one slim package.

It's ideal for controlling your internet radio or home automation projects.

Features

  • 16x3 character LCD display (full ASCII character set and eight custom glyphs)
  • Fully controllable six zone RGB backlight
  • Six bright white bar graph LEDs (individually dimmable)
  • Six capacitive touch buttons
  • Power, I2C, SPI, UART, PWM, and five GPIO pins broken out
  • SN3218 LED matrix driver chip (drives the RGB backlight)
  • Microchip CAP1166 capacitive touch driver chip
  • Display-O-Tron HAT pinout
  • Compatible with Raspberry Pi 3, 2, B+, A+, Zero, and Zero W
  • Python library
  • Comes fully assembled (breakout pins require soldering)

Software

Our Display-O-Tron Python library will get you going in a jiffy, and makes controlling Display-O-Tron HAT really easy.

We've included examples showing you how to use the backlight, bar graph LEDs, and touch buttons, as well as more advanced examples showing you how to create menus, games and even an internet radio!

Notes

If you want to keep your Pi in a case, we recommend the Pibow Coupé case as it will allow you to still use the capacitive touch buttons.

PaPiRus Zero ePaper / eInk Screen pHAT for Pi Zero - Medium (3A2 papirus zero medium)

PaPiRus Zero is an ePaper / eInk screen pHAT designed for the Raspberry Pi Zero. It’s one of the first true low power displays for the Pi Zero mini computer.

ePaper / eInk is a display technology that mimics the appearance of ink on normal paper. Unlike conventional displays, ePaper reflects light – just like ordinary paper – and is capable of holding text and images indefinitely, even without electricity. Because of this, ePaper displays and single board computers or microcontrollers are a match made in heaven as together they use a very small amount of power whilst still bringing a display to your project.

The ePaper display that comes with PaPiRus Zero is a 2″ diagonal and 128 x 96 resolution ePaper display. One fantastic aspect of the ePaper display is the fact they don’t need any power to keep the image on the screen. Just like a Kindle, you can read whatever is on your screen in daylight without any reflection. More information including wiring diagrams, datasheets & and links to example code are available at rePaper.

Potential Use Cases:

  • An eInk / ePaper Nametag
  • Display the latest weather forecast
  • A Pi Zero ePaper watch
  • Display your own Twitter Feed
  • Small dynamic digital signage (such as displaying prices for products in a store)
  • Outdoor displays where you don’t want the screen to be affected by sunlight reflection
  • Any sort of data-logging applications

PLEASE NOTE!! The PaPiRus Zero doesn’t come with a stacking header for use with the Pi Zero!
