Futaba VFD

Futaba produces some VFD modules.

I got hold of a GP1212A01 and a GP1212A02 modules for testing purposes.

Both modules can be connected through USB which is very convenient in a modern computing environment.

They are recognized as HID devices and as such do not need special drivers. Any application is thus able to drive does VFDs through HID communication.
