Monsanto MAN4  
Written by Accutron on 2017-02-16  

The Monsanto MAN4 is an early, extremely rare numeric LED display, designed to reduce costs by decreasing the digit size and packing the device in a standard 14-pin DIP package. Each segment is constructed from a single die, mounted on a gold-plated leadframe. The MAN4 has tiny 4mm digits, and was not a popular device in its time.
