pop, pop, pop, like x86 popcorn

Project Stack:

Last night I got the LCD working, with essentially zero memory requirements (okay, 80 colums * 25-ish lines = 2000 bytes…even a PIC has that much) …whee, realtime character generator in software. Stick-On-Fridge Server Monitor, here we go :-)

Also mostly-built the ghetto-blastification boxsubwoofer enclosure I mentioned in…well, the early days of this blogg, anyway, and never got around to. Now to stealgently borrow tools from work and finish it.

And we have….wireless transceivers at 2.4GHz…soon.

    Tim: I saw your blog entry on the Seiko Epson ECM-A0526 $11 LCD from allelectronics, and it was more informative than anything else I’ve found on the web on that display. But in searching your blog as a whole, couldn’t find it, so I’m leaving a comment on this blog entry, hoping you’ll see it…

    I too bought one of those $11 LCDs, and have a question about the terminal hookups: where are they?!?

    I’m new at this, so there’s something really obvious that I’m just seeing, but when I turn the LCD over, it just looks like a mystery. And there doesn’t seem to be any kind of nice 20-pin interface female like is indicated in the (sparse, very sparse) technical sheet I got with the display from allelectronics. I would have expected to see such a female pin on the side of the display, but it’s all metal. What gives?!?

    I would appreciate any help you can offer. You got it working, so clearly you are god-like in this space. Help me, man! Please! Thanks.

    @ Steve Perry:
    The connector for the panel is J10; flat ribbon Digikey Part # HF20U-08-ND is what you need.
