Help with 4-digit 7-segment display?

by 1EAS1 on Mon Mar 04, 2013 10:49 pm

I have an arduino uno SMD edition and this 4-digit 7-segment display
http://www.canadarobotix.com/robot-parts/led-lighting/parts-led-7-segment-4-digit-blue
I tried numerous times but can't set it up.
Does anyone know how or know any websites that explain it well?
Thanks!
Cheers,
Ethan

If the photos are accurate, looks like a SparkFun part. They have some links to info on the product page.

I've used several of the Adafruit 7-segment 4-digit displays with the I2C backpack. They're easy to control via the library. You can use up to eight of the displays on the I2C bus. They are very bright that can be set by software.
