Can somebody tell me what display technology this is? There're digits made out individual pixels and then there're glyphs. It is installed behind white plastic.

  • \$\begingroup\$ What about that 'alarm' symbol? is it made of pixels ? \$\endgroup\$ – nidhin May 18 '14 at 3:39
  • \$\begingroup\$ @nidhin No pixels there. \$\endgroup\$ – user42985 May 18 '14 at 9:20

    \$\begingroup\$ Then it would be LED display as BarsMonster said. \$\endgroup\$ – nidhin May 18 '14 at 9:23
  • \$\begingroup\$ Okay, thanks. Could you also please take a look on the additional questions I posted as comment to his answer? Thanks a lot. \$\endgroup\$ – user42985 May 18 '14 at 9:27

    \$\begingroup\$ I have never come across this. Try googling "custom LED displays". \$\endgroup\$ – nidhin May 18 '14 at 9:32

It might be made exactly like 7-segment LED's: i.e. a bunch of LEDs with diffuser of the required form for each pixel.

I don't think it's OLED - all OLED's I've seen were dot-matrix.

  • \$\begingroup\$ I expected something like this. Do you now whether such matrices are available off the shelf for prototyping? In mass quantities such displays are quite cheep produce, aren't they? \$\endgroup\$ – user42985 May 18 '14 at 9:24

    \$\begingroup\$ Well, for prototyping you can just use discrete LED's and your imagination. Making diffuser prototype might be more complicated - 3D printed or something for example using 2-color 3D printer, neutral (which is somewhat transparent) and black. \$\endgroup\$ – BarsMonster May 18 '14 at 11:12
