The TinyShield 7 Segment Display Board contains two seven-segment LEDs (Red LEDs) that can be set over the I2C (thus saving signals to do other tasks) by using a Semtech SX1506 I/O expander.
Each of the segments, including the decimal indicator, can be individually selected, and an easy to use library is provided to make it extremely easy to use.

- Two Seven Segment LEDs, Color Red
- Displays include a decimal indicator
- I2C Semtech SX1506 I/O Expander
TinyDuino Power Requirements
- Voltage: 3.0V - 5.5V
- 4mA per segment (3.0V)
- 10mA per segment (5.0V)
- Due to the current, this board can run for a very short time on the TinyDuino with a coin cell, however, a Lithium battery should be used for longer life.
- A5/SCL - I2C Serial Clock line
- A4/SDA - I2C Serial Data line
- 20mm x 20mm (.787 inches x .787 inches)
- Max Height (from lower bottom TinyShield Connector to the upper top of LED displays): 6.6mm (.26 inches)
- Weight: 1.36 grams (.05 ounces)
