  • When you need a big cheap display board, get this!

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    This is an easy way to get a big, bright multiple seven-segment display and switches for your Arduino projects. I could attach this to debug a robot's movement program by displaying values while it's running, or set up some parameters with the switches, then detach it when the robot is working properly. All the lights and switches worked fine and it looks well soldered and assembled.

    Cons:

    Not a big deal but it comes with standoffs that could be used to mount it onto a baseboard or robot, except that the bolts supplied are a little too long so there's no thread left in the standoff to screw into. The bolts in the photo version are shorter.

    OtherThoughts:

    Many thanks to the Dealextreme users that contributed Arduino code to drive this.

    Bottomline:

    This is a great addition to my robot building toolbox and I would recommend it to anyone.
