4Dot-Matrix R click

MIKROE-2706

4Dot-Matrix R click allows you to display 4 characters of 5x7 dot size. The click is designed to run on either 3.3V or 5V power supply. It communicates with the target microcontroller over I2C interface, with additional functionality provided by the following pins on the mikroBUS™ line: RST, CS, PWM.

How 4Dot-Matrix R click works

The SLO2016 module is paired up with the MCP23017 I2C port expander for easier use and minimal command lines.

Data is sent via the I2C expander. D0-D6 are used to select ASCII character from internal memory. A0 and A1 bits are used to select which place takes which character (1,2,3,4).

Detailed instructions are provided in the modules datasheet. The PWM pin is intended for blanking the display, and it can also be used for dimming the display.

The CLR function clears the ASCII characters RAM.

SLO2016 features

SLO2016 is a 4-Digit 5x7 Dot Matrix Alphanumeric intelligent display, with many built-in functions that will save your time. The integrated circuit contains memory, a 128 ASCII ROM decoder, multiplexing circuitry and drivers.

The character set consists of 128 special ASCII characters for English, German, Italian, Swedish, Danish, and Norwegian. So, you don't need to build a character set yourself.

You also have direct access to each digit independently and asynchronously.

Code snippet

This code snippet demonstrates the usage of a 4DotMatrix R click on EasyMx PRO v7 for STM32 ARM with STM32F107VCT6 .

After the initialization, several pieces of text are displayed in a loop, showing the functionalities of the click board and its library. First, some text is slid in from the right. Next, a sequence of numbers is displayed in succession. Finally, the display is faded out and in using PWM.
