Hello everybody!

I have this TM1638 chip micro-8 8-segment LED display but I am not sure how/where to connect the connection cable. Any ideas? I try to connet this display to an Arduino Uno 3.

I'm pretty sure there are some good instructions somewhere in the Internet but I just don't find anything... my bad  :(

All links, ideas and help are welcome!
Thank you in advance!

Hm, looks pretty nice! I haven't used it, but the first few links helped me understand it quickly, lemme know if you have any questions

Always a good website:

Google would reach a larger audience's remarks and might return more information. Google is also a better starting point than here as you just might find enough answers to ask more pertinent questions here...

Oh yeah,

I read the instructions and found this:
"For Arduino use, pins 1~4 are the minimum necessary to use one module."

and

"x is  the Arduino digital pin connected to the module cable pin 4, y is the Arduino digital pin connected to the module cable pin 3, and z is the strobe pin. So if you had one module with data, clock and strobe connected to pins 8, 7,  and 6 you would use: TM1638 module(8, 7, 6);"

If I got this right then I will connect

[font=courier]display Vcc (5V) -> Arduino 5V
display GND -> Arduino GND
display CLK -> Arduino  digital pin 8
display DIO -> Arduino  digital pin 7
display STB1 -> Arduino  digital pin 6

Did I get it? Any comments? All ideas welcome!  :)
