Well... for $1 each for 3, if I throw everything away but the keypad,
I still did OK.
With no technical info within a few google searches, I started
dismantling one. It seems that under the keypad is some
mask-programmed 40-pin DIP Texas Instruments microcontroller. :-( I
may just remove the VFD and figure out how to multiplex and drive it
the hard way from some modern microcontroller. 1x16 is handy for
plenty of things.
If anyone does ever turn up anything detailed on these, I would still
appreciate hearing about it.
