Are you fed up of fitting LEDs and current-limiting resistors time after time into your breadboard? It's surprising how often you have to do it, and how much room they take up. Well, this tiny little module is the answer.
At about the same size as a 16 pin DIP IC, this module has 8 individual surface mount (0805) LEDs along with 470Ω current limiting resistors (that's for 5V operation) and a common cathode connection
They have a Hex port reader that looks good to but can't find a link today.
The HEX display is undergoing a re-vamp at the moment and is not currently available. When it's done it will be 1,000,000% better in that it will be a PIC16 based module which is reprogrammable by someone with a suitable programmer (pickit3).
