Hi, I want to drive a VFD display with an Arduino ( or using the language/libraries, that is as I'm a novice programmer. ) The display I have is an 8-digit type with multiple segments ( I count 15 or 16 ) and it's possible I may need a chip with more pins than the '328. These displays are multiplex and complex! The plan is to get the thing to display messages ( you know, 'hello World' stuff ) : words in a sequence.
This isnt a trivial exercise, I dont think, but worth pursuing in my case as it is part of a business plan and may make me a little money! I'm not expecting anyone to write the code for me, but some pointers where to begin the entire enterprise would be nice. Thanks Bruce
