The first article introduces a small board that, using four daisy-chained shift registers, enhances Arduino with a general-purpose extension of up to 32 output ports; it works on most Arduino boards and Arduino-compatible devices. The second article completes the discussion introducing a practical application: controlling four 7-Segments LED displays with only three Arduino Pins, simply using the daisy-chained shift registers.
The PCB only or the fully assembled circuits are available on Etsy.com and Tindie.com, while more technical details can be read on the Arduino Kits section of the Projects in the pages from where sample software, the Arduino libraries and the data sheets are available for free download.
Did you read the “About Us” page? We have wrote the real history of Balearic Dynamics brand and logo. It sounds interesting and unconventional. We suggest you have a look at this link !
The refund policies – when applicable – refer to this site (Balearic Dynamics main site) and all the other e-commerce portals where you can find our products or project kits.
What about the warranty plans?
As the warranty plans and policies differ depending on product categories, please follow the warranty information link at the bottom of every listed product.
Why some prices are different compared to other platforms?
There are two important reasons.
In some cases, for example to promote a certain market or a certain selling channel, for a limited time period, we decide to sell a product at a better price on some platforms. As this is a promotion of the product this will be notified wherever possible, including this main site.
In other cases instead prices can differ somehow due to different taxation or different shipping methods. The bare price of the products is anyway equivalent so users can buy on the platform they prefer. At the date we are selling on Alibaba.com, Etsy.com and hopefully in the next days our products will be available on Amazon as well.
Sold by Balearic Dynamics in a pre-assembled kit, the Alphanumeric LCD for Arduino is based on the use of the Shift-out Register 74HC595 chip. This means that with only three pins of the Arduino board users can benefit of a great tool adding this component to their projects.
For those users interested in the details, curious, Arduino fans, or DIY lovers, they can get the component datasheet, the sample software and the circuit schematics and layout of this project on elctroschematics.com.
Detailed information on this project has been published just today by the Electroschematics.com site in one of the last articles. Not only but all the interested users should wait few more days to read the second part of the article entirely dedicated to the software aspects of the usage of the display in conjunction with their Arduino projects.
