Little history... VFDs (Vacuum Fluorescent Display) are self illuminated displays where each pixel lights up by fluorescence. This is an old, and now quite rare, technology that came into the world around the early nineties. The fascination of VFDs is the same as nixie tubes, it has a glow to it. Green or green-aqua VFDs are the most common old ones, rare ones come in white VFD, but these... these are the very rare deep blue.
The High Tech Green-Aqua VFDs where always used in the highest tech brands to give the amazingly cool (and very expensive) look of the User Interface display, specially for audio/video market, but when the display was in a deep blue hue... one knew he just got to the top of the last shelf.
Now, with Raging Bits help you can give that amazing feel to your own tech!

VFD clock with buttons and UART: The controller (PT6302LQ-001) is the same, but driven by an 8bit microcontroller that is interface with a UART and buttons. This model also has an onboard RTC to keep time accurately, with respective slot for a coincell battery. The UART 9600bps interface is simple and can even be done using a simple serial terminal.
