STATUS UPDATE: PIC LCD backpack
We’re trying a new Monday post with status updates on new projects currently in production. This will cover project development, and gritty details like last minutes changes and production problems.
- USB and serial control of characters LCDs
- Supported in common software (LCD Smartie) as ‘matrix orbital’ display
- Adjust contrast and backlight from software
- Couple extra pins for buttons
- 500mA fuse
- USB upgradable
The master prototype has been shipped to Seeed, but we probably won’t produce it because HD44780 LCDs aren’t very popular anymore. If you’d like a PCB (and plan to build it) please let us know in the comments.LCD, Status update and tagged PIC LCD backpack.
