Hello everyone,

I have a project I am working on and I want to add something similar to what is in the picture.
I need the numbers to change, the graphic doesn't have to (I can make a cutout and put an LED behind in)
Any idea which screens I can use?
I was looking around and saw the TFT. They are nice but might be a bit more complicated than what I need (especially since I never worked with screens before)
Anyone has different ideas?

Regards,
Patrick

I have note picked a controller yet. But most probably I will have to work with PIC microcontrollers. Is that possible?

any examples to start from?
Different displays have different requirements. Graphic displays need more resources from the uC than text only displays. You need to choose a suitable display then look for code for driving it.
I have a 320x240 pixel graphic display being driven by a 20 pin PIC (PIC18F14K22) so there is no problem there.
