VFDs can also function in extreme temperatures and provide wide viewing angles and excellent readability. The most widely used phosphor is ZnO:

RichieACC it may work, barely visible, even from 12v. But I don’t have the equipment to drive that at the moment.

Please select an existing parts list. I’ve never used a VFD before, so this is completely new ground for me.

Thanks for an informative answer. By using our site, you acknowledge that you have read and understand our Cookie PolicyPrivacy Policyand our Terms of Service. Post as a guest Name. Nick, it’s futaa about having a display, it’s about playing with this display and learning how it works. Robust, reliable and inexpensive. VFDs are the preferred display for audio and visual systems, microwave ovens and other home applications.


You have chosen to save the following item to a parts list:. Your display is divided in 8 groups of elements, each group has a connection pin so 8 pins.

VFDs can also function in extreme temperatures and provide wide viewing angles and excellent readability.

Futaba VFD

Looks like a raw display, no power or data controller. Since then, it’s been lying in my electronics box. Therefore, it has the advantage of environment resist, fugaba reliability and long life. I looked at your link. Also, VFDs can provide uniform luminance giving you high design freedom.

It is held between an anchor and filament support which apply tension to the wire.

Zn which operates at low voltage dizplay has green peak wavelength of nm. Thanks for an honest opinion. Please enter a message.

What is Production Packaging? Have a look displa this page where the author shows how to build a clock using some small VFD tube displays. eisplay


Positive voltage applied to the phosphor coated cisplay attracts electrons which colide with the phosphor and cause light to emit. Features VFDs have excellent readability compared to other display technologies because of their self-luminous capability and wide viewing angle. When a positive voltage is applied to the grid, electrons emitted from the filament are accelerated and diffused toward the anode.

You can design fonts and patterns freely.

Vacuum Fluorescent Display (VFD) | Futaba Corporation of the Philippines

We have 15 different color phosphors, so that a beautiful multi-color display is available. I’m even more intrigued now.

They require a high voltage, in the order of 50 V Dispay for the anode and a lower voltage but with some current capability to power the filament those are the very thin wires at the fron of the display just under the front glass. VFDs have the same structure as vacuum tubes, so it is hardly influenced by external factors.
