What’s up with HD44780 LCD displays?

Monday, July 14th, 2014

Nerd Ralph writes: There's lots of projects and code online for using character LCD displays based on these controllers, particularly the ones with 2 rows of 16 characters (1602).  They're low power (~1mA @5V), and for only $2 each, they're the cheapest LCD modules I've found.  The controllers are over...
