Midas Displays offer a range of Vacuum Fluorescent Displays (VFD) in character and graphic formats. These emissive displays are available in a range of colours on a black background (negative mode). The standard colours are jade green but options are available in red, amber, blue, and white. Operating temperature range is -20 to +70 deg C.
The character VFD modules are available in 16x1, 16x2, 20x2, 20x4, 40x2, and 20x1 format with dot matrix 16 segment characters. These 5V and 12V modules have built in controllers with various font options. Other options include brightness level control, user definable characters, and serial or parallel interface.
The graphic devices offered are glass panel only (non-module). A wide range of dot matrix, segment and bar graph formats are available which can be mixed on 1 display. These displays are particularly useful in applications requiring wide viewing angle and emissive solutions.
