Orient Display OD-454

Can i use the Orient Display OD-454 with an Arduino. And if so what more do I need, Any examples online?

Hello Tony1,

Yes, but…

Devices such as the OD-454 require the microcontroller to control each segment of the display. This would require a large number of control pins from a microcontroller or the inclusion of shift registers such as the 74HC595.

This is not a common application, and I am not aware of any Arduino example. On the other hand, this would be an excellent academic exercise and I would encourage you and our readers to give it a try and then share you results with the community.

If you are looking for a more direct and easier to implement display, please consider the LCD character display as describe here.

Best Wishes,
