'[PICLIST] [EE] source for inexpensive VFDs (displa'
2000\12\22@111728 by Spehro Pefhany

Hi, anyone have a good source for low cost Vacuum Flourescent
Displays, preferably alphanumerical dot matrix (not graphical).

Looking for a good price in relatively low quantities < 100 pcs
per buy, and I'd prefer to get something that was more
than just the bare glass, but if the price is low enough, that
could work too. Preferable ~ $10 US/pcs.

Thanks for any leads,

$10 is a pretty optimistic price.

We use Noritake displays on our stuff.  They cost several times that, but are
VERY compatible with existing LCD stuff.  I recently did a project to emulate
(as much as possible <G>) a VT100 on one of these.

You're talking bare glass, far east, large quantity..
VFDs are $$.  We wanted to use LCDs in the verifone terminals, but the
customers wouldn't have it. The VFDs look do much nicer.

Controllers are interesting too, and then you have to feed them.
Filament drive is even more fun, but I can help you with that.

We were a Futaba shop. Rockwell Pmos controller, and a home-made flyback
supply for the  -30 and -10V supplies.  Nice displays, but the filament is
a bit touchy. The normal flyback winding solution is workable, but not ideal.

Not a bad idea, but I'm not thrilled with the general LCD interface.
It's slow, needing inconvenient delays, and needs a relatively large number
of pins.

If I had to use a module, the clocked serial interface would be my choice.
Three pins, plus power and ground.

If you're looking inexpensive though, modules are not the way to go. You're
paying for that convenience.

check Futaba, but seems like you would get them @ $10 for >> 100 pcs
simple LCD modules are >$5 for <100 pcs

VFDs are pricey. When I saw the dumpster full of broken glass outside the
Futaba plant in Taiwan, I understood..

If anyone in West Australia is after some clocked serial starburst VFD's for
projects I have some in the shed.

I think you are refering to bigger  VFD than these but here goes anyway
JayCar have 11 digit, digit = 6.0 mm x 3.5 mm for AU$1.44 for 10+
Part No ZD-1880.

They also have driver chips to suit
