Display Panel PCB Success

Today all of the PCB’s I made for my 7-segment displays arrived. I was eager to see how they worked so off to work I went.

Here’s the PC Boards. 1 card to attach to the Opencockpits DisplayCard, 1 for the Nav panel, 1 for the Comm panel, and 1 little jumper for the ATC panel.

 

Interface board attached to the DisplayCard.

 

Interface board attached to the back of the NAV radio panel. The displays are soldered to the board and then a 40-pin IDC ribbon cable connects the displays to the DisplayCard.

 

And when I fired up all the digits….


Success!

This will make wiring up the displays soooo much easier.
