      The C source code of the PIC micro-controller was already linked on the article : https://hackaday.io/project/9687-bigclock : in files section.
      I got the LCD lumex panels on digikey.com, but they are not available anymore. If you are looking for large LCD 7-segment panels, do a simple search on digikey, these ones seems very nice https://www.digikey.com/product-detail/en/orient-display/OD-103R/2544-OD-103R-ND/12089273 .
      Hope that helped, have a nice day,

    Hi Pierre,
    Thanks for reply. I’m searching for the LCD module for repairing an old instrument.
    It has the same LCD as your clock. But I can’t buy it, not available, as you said. China market is also unsuccessful.
    Thanks for the link, I will check the suggested type as replacement.
    Have a great day.

    Hello! Could you share your Planar EL320.240.36 project, please? Google Code has “passed away” and the download links no longer work – and I have a Planar QVGA screen I would like to recycle myself. Thank you! x

        Hello ! I’m deeply sorry for the missing code and delay. Indeed, almost everything were lost after google code shutdown. I tried to find the project on my back up. I could only find the Quartus project files, and it is a mess. I could not recover the schematic I wrote on paper, showing the pins connection of all the components to the DE0-nano… At least there is the verilog files, but not sure if it is useful outside Quartus. I’ve put these remaining on the github rep you found.
        Hope that helps a bit…

    I am very fascinated by your flip dot displays and was wondering if you would be willing to to sell one of them. I don’t have any knowledge about what you are doing and would need one that could be operated by a amateur. I would be happy to hear from you : ——@—.–

    Best regards Julian

      Hi Julian,
      Thanks a lot for your nice words!
      Unfortunately I made these flipdot by hand, which is a very time consuming process. The aim of the project was to test a different driving strategy, and demonstrate dots of a matrix can all be flipped simultaneously. In addition of the building time, I think the project is not really cost effective either.
      If you want an easy flipdot matrix to play with, I could really recommend the products of AlfaZeta. ( https://flipdots.com/en/products-services/flip-dot-boards-xy5/ ). Budget wise it should be the same as my DIY project – all considered, and you’ll get a professional product and support.
      Hope that helps a bit, and my apologies if my answer is a bit disappointing.
      Have a nice day!
