BRIEF HISTORY LESSON
were used on a lot of electronic equipment in the Mid
70's. These units consisted of devices
containing Neon Gas
which glowed red when a high voltage was placed across them. Numercators
as they were called could only display numbers.
Segment Display became popular when Hand-Held
Calculators first appeared. These used
Emitting Diodes (LEDs) and were controlled
by a Microprocessor.
This was the time

Segment Display for use with Alphabetic
Characters as well as numbers.
Segment Display's popularity diminished
rapidly after the introduction of the Liquid
Crystal Display (LCD) which could display
not only Alpha-Numeric Characters
