    FS: Noritake 4*20 HD44780 VFD Displays

    UPDATES 01/11/2003. As my supply is now starting to dwindle, I am adding this to the offer. Two for the total price of $100 (free shipping), for a savings of $20. If you have a friend that may be interested, you now have an opportunity to save money... for just you or for the both of you. Single unit purchase remain the same as below. Thanks.

    This is a repeat of my [H] post: Here

    Here we go again. More items to soon leave my VFD collection going towards my new PC budget. I don't imagine these will last long. They are HD44780 compatible, they are nice for drive bay mods, and they are VFD's... which leave LCD's in the dust any day of the week.



    Also of interest. I have seen one of these exact models used with a Seetron serial backpack and the LCD SMartie software. So if you can't live without serial, you have an option. Their are other serial backpacks including one by Noritake, but I have only seen the Seetron in person, thus I can only vouch for that one. Don't like blue? Easily remedied: Here

    Though untested by myself, this should also work with any software that supports HD44780 communications (LCD Smartie, LCDriver v2, SpecialK's stuff, LCDC or LCDriver v1.2 with a serial converter board etc.) This is noted by the almighty Uller in this thread: Here

    What you get. The VFD, full datasheet, abbreviated datasheet (linked below), and free shipping in the USA. You will also get a new picture, posted here for all to see, with YourUserName filled in so their are no worries of DOA.

    Make: Noritake
    Model: CU20045SCPB-U1J
    Dimensions: Here
    Cost: $60 each DELIVERED

    FYI: DigiKey price: $92 + shipping + applicable tax

    My EBAY feedback: Here

    I'm actually buying one from this guy. There's a couple pretty kickass things about these VFD's from what I've seen:

    1) They're smaller - It's the smaller of the 3 sizes of Noritake displays. The characters have the full 5x8 character matrix, but the overall size is slightly smaller than the full sized displays. It'll take up less room in your dash.

    2) It's parallel, and comes pre-soldered with pin headers. The ones that come with it are like an inch long, but you can take some simple wire cutters and trim them to the length you need.

    3) Matrix-orbital screens are $120 - this one is $70. Even if you wanted serial, you might be able to find a simple serial backpack kit that you could rig yourself for cheap.
