  1. Did you have problem getting started with the module?  my only problem was finding a connector for the module. it would have been helpful to include just the connector to get started.
  2. How did you connect the display with your device - serial connection
  3. What did you use the display for? gps coordinates display, time display, prototyping
  4. Which processor/MCU/OS did you use?  used on arduino and udoo, arm and i.MX6
  5. What type of commands would you like to see?  just some to display strings, scroll, nothing really new
this is a nice bright large module that seems to work quite well.

  4. Which processor/MCU/OS did you use?
  5. What type of commands would you like to see?

1) It was a bit unwieldy at first. I had some issues being a bit of a novice programmer. My guess is that for the more advanced programmers it was a bit difficult.
2) Serial
3) I attempted to make a long scale data logger. Showign a variety of values averages and a chart. I suceeded at everything but the chart
4) Arduino
5) Simple graphing would be nice [biggrin] More than anything, more example code for novices to dig into. Maybe better explained example code. Something that helps novices like myself or people even more novice than me get going.

  1. Did you have problem getting started with the module?  I agree that finding the proper connector was difficult. Would be nice to have either bare headers or pin holes where we can use our own header
  2. How did you connect the display with your device? Serial
  3. What did you use the display for? Currency conversion and output for a Bitcoin Box
  4. Which processor/MCU/OS did you use? Raspberry Ii
  5. What type of commands would you like to see? Honestly I'd just like to see more non-windows support.  The screen layout tool is somewhat useful but windows only

  1. Did you have problem getting started with the module? Like the others said, the initial wiring was a little difficult but once I got past that it was pretty smooth sailing
  2. How did you connect the display with your device? Serial
  3. What did you use the display for? Display for reflow oven
  4. Which processor/MCU/OS did you use? Arduino
  5. What type of commands would you like to see? Graphing would help to display reflow profiles and easier to understand examples

  • 1. Did you have problem getting started with the module?
I had a little trouble getting the display hooked up at first as no connector that I had on hand was quite right. I waited a week meaning to get the connector and then finally just took a few minutes and got something that would work to fit.
  • 2. How did you connect the display with your device
Serial connection initially. I believe it could be parr
  • 3. What did you use the display for?
It is currently displaying the status for an HPLC system so that it can be monitored from across a lab at a glance.
  • 4. Which processor/MCU/OS did you use?
It was initially hooked up to an msp430. It is now hooked up to a Windows NT machine. There maybe an intermediary but I am not by it now and it was actually set up over the last weekend by someone else.
  • 5. What type of commands would you like to see?
Off hand I remember having some level of difficulty getting multiple bar graphs to display and change with new data. I finally limited it to 4 graphs with one per user window and it worked. It now shows many more but that may be through a parallel connection to the HPLC PC.

I tried very hard to increase the user-screens past the limit of 4 but was not about to work it out at the time. Up to 8 or so would be nice.

Nice and simple font modifiers are always welcome. We could use a lot of subscript and superscript fonts to improve the readability of the status if it was simple to use these modifiers. I tried defining new fonts that were the modified versions that we would need but the was a communication issue with the data from the system being interpreted correctly when we did that. We went back to the previous method of no modifiers. This whole problem could have been a problem with our opaque system.

  1. Did you have problem getting started with the module?
  • No.  Have used many Noritake displays.
  1. How did you connect the display with your device
  • USB->Serial adapter
  1. What did you use the display for?
  • tested w/custom MCU and finally installed in HTPC (media center) for status display
  1. Which processor/MCU/OS did you use?
  • PIC32MX for testing, Windows7
  1. What type of commands would you like to see?
  • Command set is fine for my needs so far.

Please provide us with the following feedback:

1. Did you have problem getting started with the module?
  • Having only used the smaller Noritake VFDs in the past, I did not realize initially that it required *2* power sources (5V and 24V), and assumed it was probably one or the other.  Once I realized that, it worked flawlessly.
2. How did you connect the display with your device
  • Initially, with direct serial connection to PC, to evaluate using the Noritake GUD-10K software.
3. What did you use the display for?
  • Testing as a logging display for an commercial communication system.
4. Which processor/MCU/OS did you use?
  • Initially, direct PC connection (using Windows w/ GUD-10K) then later with linux-based script (ARM6-based dev board)
5. What type of commands would you like to see?
  • The command set is actually quite well-developed, but it could be very handy to have a "terminal mode" which could act as a direct serial display.

  1. Did you have problem getting started with the module? Tracking down the right connectors and ensuring the right voltage shift on the serial input and took a little time
  2. How did you connect the display with your device - I connected it with a serial connection
  3. What did you use the display for? To display multiple instrument readouts
  4. Which processor/MCU/OS did you use? I connected it with the Parallax propeller and BasicStamp
  5. What type of commands would you like to see? Not sure,  perhaps the option to emulate other standard commands to match the smaller VFDs

  1. Did you have problem getting started with the module?   I did not know I would need 24v. Other than that, it was similar to using other Noritake VFDs. More example code would be nice.
  2. How did you connect the display with your device?   Serial connection
  3. What did you use the display for?   Prototype monitoring system
  4. Which processor/MCU/OS did you use?   TI MSP430
  5. What type of commands would you like to see?   The command set suits my needs. As someone else commented, it might be handy to have a 'dumb terminal' serial mode.

  • 1. Did you have problem getting started with the module?
it took a while to wait for parts to connect it.. (power booster and connectors)
  • 2. How did you connect the display with your device
Serial
  • 3. What did you use the display for?
status display for a 3d printer
  • 4. Which processor/MCU/OS did you use?
udoo, so imx and sam3x (due)
  • 5. What type of commands would you like to see?

more arduino ide examples would be nice, along with examples for parallel port use as well..

  1. Did you have problem getting started with the module? Other than locating proper connectors and the 24v supply, no real problems.
  2. How did you connect the display with your device? Serial.
  3. What did you use the display for? It's intent is as a dashboard display for a motorcycle but it's still in development.
  4. Which processor/MCU/OS did you use? TI MSP430 / TM4C123G.
  5. What type of commands would you like to see? No suggestions at this time.

How did you connect the display with your device?    serial


What did you use the display for?   prototype for multichannel electronic load


Which processor/MCU/OS did you use?     psoc 5lp


What type of commands would you like to see?   ditto the:  
"The command set is actually quite well-developed, but it could be very handy to have a "terminal mode" which could act as a direct serial display."

but I haven't yet come to a point where it'd really have me fantasizing about it.
