Both modules have 8 seven segment displays.
The big difference is that my first module has 8 leds and less (8) input keys, while my second module has 16 keys and no leds. As the 16 pins are arranged as 4*4 this module can be used as a Hex keypad. 
The Dupont pin arrangement on both PCBs is different.
Below schematic diagram of the modules as i did not put it in my previous posts. 



Diagrams and some other interesting info (in Italian) about these modules can be found at http://www.microcontroller.it/Tutorials/Elettronica/componenti/tm1638.htm
