This 8 digit seven segment display module (MODU0082) is based upon the Maxim MAX7219 LED display driver.
The module uses two standard 4 digit seven segment displays to display a total of 8 digits in RED with decimal point.
A convenient input and output header allows additional modules to be daisy-chained and controlled with just just 3 digital IO pins.
To panel mounting the module has 4 mounting holes and 4 brass pillars with screws are supplied.
The Maxim MAX7219 driver allows for each segment of up to 8 digits (with decimal point) to be controlled individually from a serial interface.
An 8x8 static ram area stores each digit and multiplexing the display is handled automatically.
Cable is not supplied.
