View Full Version : PN/source for the dual-16-segment blue CC LEDs used on the PPDB?

12-10-2009, 03:18 AM
I'm working on a circuit on my PPDB and have decided to try incorporating one or more of the dual-16-segment LEDs into the final design. I've Googled around a bit looking for these, but so far I have only found similar components in red. I want them to be blue...

Where can I get the ones that are used on the Propeller Professional Development Board?

something like this http://www.tradevv.com/chinasuppliers/nbflying/offers-detail-4d013/sell-led-16-segment-display.html (http://www.tradevv.com/chinasuppliers/nbflying/offers-detail-4d013/sell-led-16-segment-display.html) ?

Or maybe you just ask the parallax team ?

Futurlec do them in red or green. www.futurlec.com/LEDDisp.shtml (http://www.futurlec.com/LEDDisp.shtml)

These displays are a bit hard to find anyway but if you do find the blue ones pls let us all know. I've been pondering multiplex circuits for these display.

A quick scan through a Mouser catalogue shows a dual green one for $3.58 but the same size one in blue is $18.20.
