Now this is a project to pay attention to. I dont know about you but i’ve always been a fan of scrolling text displays. This is cool. You can use it on pc casing moding, or anywhere else where you might want to add this nice effect. The text can be sent via RS232 interface from a computer, or it can be saved on a EEPROM memory. Fonts set of 256 different characters can also be programmed and mast be written to EEPROM before sending text to display. The author provides you with full info on building the project and also on the firmware.
