Texas Instruments DIS134C Nine-Digit Calculator LED Display

Features

These Nine-Digit Calculator Numeric Seven-Segment LED Displays are intended for use under pulsed conditions by enabling the common cathode of each digit sequentially and enabling the desired Segment and Decimal Point anodes in phase with the character enabling pulse. The pulse rate is kept high enough so that light from each character appears to the eye to be constant.

The DIS134C Nine-Digit display assembly consists of a printed circuit board (PCB) with 9 individual DISXXX Seven-Segment displays and was introduced in August 1973 with the TI-2500 Version 3 to replace the earlier display assemblies based on the TIL360 Multi-Digit displays. The increased spacing between the DISXXX elements and the integrated magnifying lens improved the readability of the 0.1/2.54 mm characters significantly compared to the TI-2500 Version 2.

Technology

The displays are formed by soldering twelve individual DISXXX Seven-Segment displays on a double-sided printed circuit board (PCB) and placing a one-piece acrylic magnifying lens with cylindrical shape on top of the assembly with two heat stakes.

Packaging

The DIS134C uses a 2.50" / 63.5 mm by 1.02 / 26.0 mm rectangular printed circuit board (PCB) with 19 solder tabs with a 0.1 / 2.54 mm pitch arranged on the bottom of the display module.
