LED Bar graphs are one of the best ways to provide visual feedback to users in projects where using a screen might be an overkill. Especially in projects where you need to indicate level, intensity, and other values that are worth representing on a bar graph.
The quality of LED bar graphs has not really improved over time. Users are still subjected to the low resolution due to spaces between the LEDs, the poor brightness, and high power consumption of the LEDs.
There have been several attempts to fix this, with different products on different electronics stores, but one recent LED bar graph which caught our attention with its next-gen feel and brightness is the Nixie-Like Linear Dot LED bar graph recently evaluated in a blog post on Tindie.
A solid attempt in replacing the classic IN-13 linear bar graph Nixie tube whose price has increased incredibly in the past few years, the super bright High-resolution LED paragraph designed by US-based Studio 449 and provides a modern looking high performing LED bar graph without the huge expense and high-power requirements of the old Nixie tubes.
Featuring a linear array of TLC59283 LED drivers with 128 densely-placed orange SMD LEDs placed 1mm apart, the new graph allows you to attain a resolution of up to 128 points/steps, all on a portable 25 x 150 mm board dimensions, which ensures it does not cause a significant change in the form factor of your project.
