A simple interface to the TM1638 based displays for the Raspberry Pi. Dealextreme, doubtless amongst others, sell small boards with eight seven-segment displays, eight red-green LEDs and eight push buttons for less than $10. The boards are basically just the LEDs and switches, and a TM1638 driver chip. This sits on a two-wire serial bus which makes it fairly easy to connect the boards to a computer/microcontroller of your choice. Of course, one needs a little bit of software. This is such a library for the Raspberry Pi. You can grab the code from github https://github.com/mjoldfield/pi-tm1638 1. Checkout the code (needs autotools): git clone https://github.com/mjoldfield/pi-tm1638.git autoreconf -vfi ./configure make sudo make install 2. Or just grab the a tarball (no autotools needed): wget https://github.com/downloads/mjoldfield/pi-tm1638/pi-tm1638-1.0.tar.gz tar xzvf pi-tm1638-1.0.tar.gz cd pi-tm1638-1.0 ./configure make sudo make install If you've got doxygen installed, you'll find docs in doc/html. Otherwise feel free to browse them on github.
