Got dots ?

A project log for Dot flippers

or "flip dotters" if you want. Let's just talk about flip-dot/flip-disc displays and projects using them :-)

So today I received a few flip dot modules.

These are 28 dots by 7 from Hanover (UK). The connector is quite unusual but the signals are easy to drive, the row and column drivers are integrated. They are described in some pages such as :

The shipping has damaged some dots but they are not hard to fix (actually, they are now all fixed). I have some projects for these modules but I'm not the only one to use them :-)

The connector is quite unusual but can still be found : https://uk.farnell.com/lumberg/mica14/socket-free-idt-14way/dp/808842

Dedication : Thanks to Denis, Stéphane, Andrew and Sam !

Update : Sam got a few modules as well :

It's a good start ;-)
