Combine several modules to enable Raspberry Pi to power a large 1.2 inch, 4-digit, 7-segment display. A small switch changes the display between showing the temperature and the current time. This project uses a real-time clock to ensure that the Raspberry Pi always has the correct time, even if it is not connected to the Internet.

Parts Needed

  • Raspberry Pi Model B
  • 4-Digit 7 Segment Display – Red
  • Real Time Clock Breakout
  • Digital Temperature Sensor + Extras
  • Pi Cobbler Breakout
  • Half Size Breadboard
  • Male/Male Jumper Wires 40×6”
