Dave over at EEVblog tested an HD44780 LCD, and he used the Bus Pirate and LCD adapter in his demo. In the video he works with an LCD that has a 2×8 header, but the LCD adapter only supports a 1×16 type. Here’s a prototype LCD adapter board updated with an optional 2×8 LCD header. Now it should be possible to test nearly all common HD44780 character displays.
Currently version 3 of the LCD adapter is on sale at Seeed, an upcoming batch will feature this unpopulated optional header as well.
See the Bus Pirate in the EEVblog after the break.
