With the ability to display 8 characters, data such as the time, date, counters, stock prices, sports scores and more can be shown on the ZeroSeg. There are endless possibilities and project uses!
The ZeroSeg contains two red (4-character) 7-segment displays and two tactile buttons for controlling the displays, brightness or any other element of your project.
The displays are controlled by a MAX7219CNG integrated circuit, which manages each LED segment, requiring very few GPIO pins to run the board. this boards circuit is wired in the exact same way as generic 7-segment modules, allowing the use of existing code and libraries to easily create Pi Zero projects with 8-character displays.
