NEW PRODUCTS THIS WEEK


Adafruit 0.56″ 4 Digit 7 Segment Assembled Display – with I2C QT Backpack – Green

What’s better than a single LED? Lots of LEDs! A fun way to create a small display is to use an 8×8 matrix or a 4-digit 7-segment display. Dies like these are “multiplexed” – so to control all seven segment LEDs you need 14 pins. That’s a lot of pins, and there are driver chips like the MAX7219 that can control a die for you, but there’s a lot of wiring to configure, and they take up a ton of space. At Adafruit, we feel your pain! After all, wouldn’t it be great if you could control a matrix without tons of wiring? That’s where these adorable LED array backpacks come in. We have them in two versions – a mini 8×8 and a 7 segment 4 digit 0.56″ . They work great with the dies we stock in the Adafruit store and make adding a small lighted display trivial. .

Adafruit 0.56″ 4-Digit 7-Segment Assembled Display – with STEMMA QT I2C Backpack – Red

The matrices use a driver chip that does all the heavy lifting for you: they have a built-in clock to multiplex the display. They use constant-current drivers for ultra-bright, consistent colors (the images above are photographed at the darkest setting to avoid overloading our camera!), 1/16-step display gradation, the all through a simple I2C interface. Backpacks come with address select jumpers so you can connect up to four mini 8×8s or eight 7-segments (or a combination, like four mini 8×8s and four 7-segments, etc.) on a single I2C bus.

LED Filament – 3V 26mm long – Warm White Pack of 3

These non-flexible LED filaments are often found in “Edison-like” LED bulbs, arranged in different patterns to give a warm, bright lighting effect. They are made up of dozens of micro LED diodes that are glued together on a rigid metal backing and then coated in silicone for protection. Since the LEDs are in parallel, you only need 3V to turn them on – we recommend limiting the current with a resistor to allow a maximum of 50mA to flow.

Please note that these are NOT flexible! However, they have a nice even glow all around and really do a great job of mimicking a tungsten type filament.

n00ds – Flexible LED Filament – ​​3V 300mm long – Pink

Our favorite food when hacking code or electronics is a bowl of hot noodles – and around New York they’re often called “noodles”! What we have here are flexible LED noodles, in different lengths and colors. Not all of them are good to eat but they are good for cool lighting effects

These are often seen in “Edison type” LED bulbs, shaped like hearts or stars or simply rolled up to create a fun or warm lighting effect. They are made up of dozens of LED diodes that are glued together on an ultra-flexible metal backing, then coated in colored silicone for protection. Since the LEDs are in parallel, you only need 3V to turn them on.

Comes one per pack. Add mini noodle-y neon bling to your miniature sets, dioramas, dollhouses, mini verses, what have you!

Simply power with 3V connecting to both ends – the anode should be the end with a small hole in it. If it doesn’t turn on immediately, try connecting the other way, no problem.

See more! Also available in yellow, blue, red, warm white and green
