Anyone know about the TM1640 chip? I've ordered one, and i'm going to try and figure it out.
http://www.dealextreme.com/p/jy-mcu-16x-digital-tube-yellow-led-module-104311

Here is all the reference info I could find:


Schematic: http://ljy99731.13.dns222.net/download/LM1640_sch.pdf
Datasheet: http://ljy99731.13.dns222.net/download/tm1640.pdf


Is it similar to the TM1638, for which an arduino library has already been built?
http://code.google.com/p/tm1638-library/

I've contacted the author of the arduino TM1638 library, and he's also got one of these units on order, to try and figure out.

Opens up & just says "Translated version of TM1640", no text or drawing or anything.

Must be on your end. If you open the HTML file all the data is there, and it displays fine on my screen.


It'd probably be easier to just go to translate.google.com and hit the blue link "Type text or a website address or translate a document."
Then just upload the PDF. Worked on multiple computers for me?

I can get the Chinese version of the TM1640 downloaded, translate.google.com won't do the translation.
Need the address information on I2C commands to send it data for each digit.

See attached PDF. Hopefully this works!

???? Weird!

OK this has to work:
I physically took screenshots of the translated version, I tried to leave some overlap so you don't get lost.
