    non backlit LCD display? single line...

    Does anyone know of a serial or parallel LED display. I only need one line by 20 characters (or so). I don't want anything backlit though. I need an LED type display (like a radar detector has). Does anyone know if such a beast exists?!?

    Thanks in advance!

    Your message title says LCD, your message says LED. Which one do you want?

    1 line LCD displays are pretty easy to find. This page has several for example:

    Clarification: LED needed

    I've been reading up on VFD displays, but I'm wondering if there is an LED display out there. I just need a single line by 40 or a 2 line by 20. I need whichever is brighter/better. I'm not exactly sure which would be better at this point. Does anyone have any pointers? I'm leaning towards LED because I've heard that they are brighter. I've been looking at the Matrix Orbital 20x2 VFD display, and it looks decent.

    Does anyone have any suggestions or pointers??? Do they make LED serial displays (not VFD) ????

    Thanks,
    CB
