This monospaced pixel font is about 75% based on one of the fonts from a commercially available LED sign. The starting design had many of the glyphs presented here, although some of the extended latin characters have been generated to fill out the set. Some of the glyphs are a bit awkward, but that's how it was in the sign. ;)
This pixelfont is based on the content of a ROM dump from an 8-LED tall marquee sign controller. The font was originally fixed-width, but I think it looks better as a proportional font. It also did not contain any characters outside of the base Latin character set.
An awkward name perhaps, for an odd little, simple version of an "LED Screen-slash-Scoreboard-Style Capitals Only" font... (I plan on adding the Extended ASCII, Soon™)
Years ago, I contacted the author of a similar-styled font, to ask specifically for Commercial Use of his font, that looked somewhat like this one (I have been using it "Officially" at my Blog since then).
Today, I found Fontstruct and thought "why don't I make my own version this font, not only for my own use, but for others to possibly use as well?".
And so, here is an 'LED Screen' or 'Dot Matrix' style font (also usable as a 'Pixel style' font) - with punctuation and a couple of 'accents' - but capitals only, as traditional LED Screens or Scoreboards ("Score Screens") would have used; made for you, on this wonderful, easy-to-use interface, Fontstruct.
I plan on making many more, including finishing those I started on my own in other font-creation applications!
I am 'Troy from The Game Tips And More Blog', by the way, heh

This is a font based on the Lear Siegler ADM-3A terminal. It's a 5x7 pixel monospaced pixel font. I may make another version with accented glyphs, but this one only supports the bare minimum.
It's kinda quirky in that the lower case letters' baseline is moved up by a pixel so that there's space for descenders. I likda like the look of it, myself.
Throw it in your terminal emulator and add some scanlines and enjoy the world of 1970s mainframe computing!
