M66004Vfd allows control of VFDs (vacuum fluorescent displays) based on the Mitsubishi/Renesas M66004 VFD controller IC. It also includes a class for using the buttons and LEDs on the LaserJet board.
This example sketch:
Caution: The board operates from 5v however generates higher voltages (40v) and should not be operated outside of a suitable enclosure.
There are a multiple variations of this board with at least two different connector pinouts. You should confirm how the connector pins connect to the integrated circuits on the board before applying power.
|Arduino Pin||10 pin dual row connector||9 pin single row connector*||M66004 IC Pin||HC165 IC Pin||HC595 IC Pin|
|GND||1, 2, 3||1, 2|
|+5V||4, 5||8, 9|
