The LD8113 is a large, attractive VFD tube with a flat top and flying leads. The tube's unusual segment arrangement allows a single tube to generate both numbers and signs, as well as some alphabetical characters. Though the tube appears to have 10 segments, the four horizontal and vertical segments in the center of the display are ganged together to form an 8-segment tube. Digit height is 14mm and envelope height is 43mm excluding the tube's nipple.
