'[EE] Panasonic out of 7-segment display market?'

I just found out today that Panasonic has discontinued ALL of their
7-segment LED displays. Maybe I am the last to find out since this seems to
have happened about a year ago. Anyway, does anyone know if Panasonic sold
the tooling to another manufacturer, and if so, who? Just curious.

Another interesting tidbit - the Digikey catalog still prominently features
Panasonic 7-segment displays on the inside back cover of the latest catalog
even though Panasonic has discontinued the entire product line.

A company called Knightbridge (knightsbridge?) has taken over that
market. They have a good foundry and can match
everybody's displays.

Thanks Bob. Um, I have been unsuccesful in locating Knightbridge or
Knightsbridge using Google for about an hour or so. Would you happen to have
any contact info for these guys?

You mean Kingbright?    http://www.us.kingbright.com/

I've used their parts for probably 5 years or so. They make good
quality LEDs and they've always been reasonbly priced too.

I think it's Kingbright (http://www.us.kingbright.com/default.asp ). The
graphic intensive site is kind of a pain...

Oh Kingbright. I have looked at them already... unfortunately they don't
have what I need :(

We were using Panasonic LN514GK - The people that seem to make electrically
pin-out equivalents have a larger physical size then the Panasonic. Too wide
in our case. :(

Thanks everybody. Looks like we'll be redesigning our display board.
