FT232-based LCD backpack free PCB build

Posted on Thursday, May 17th, 2012 in builds by DP

Kelvin built a free FT232-based LCD backpack PCB.

I have built the FT232-based LCD backpack free PCB for quite a while However, the free application provided by the project doesn’t seem to work for me.

Only until recently did I manage to find the time to write a utility in Linux for the LCD backpack. I treated it as an exercise to play with FT232 bitbang mode. The application can be found at  github.com 

If you build a free PCB we’ll send you another one! Blog about it, post a picture on Flicker, whatever – we’ll send you a coupon code for the free PCB drawer.
