  • LCD

    Hi. I'm looking for a LCD of thouse who can be connected directly to RS-232 Serial port or LPT (Parallel Port) and their documentation. I'm making a linux interface for my own project but I still haven't find any LCD.
    Thanks in advance.

    They have a serial-driven LCD and also sell a
    pre-packaged pc-bay insert that you can
    plug right into a 5-1/4 bay.

    I belive was also planning on
    selling a serial lcd.

      You can get software that interfaces with the matrix-orbital display from if you care to run linux.


      Opinions are like heinie-holes - everyone has one and noone particularly cares about yours.

        On my caprice there's a little emblem panel in between the two fans in the center of the car's dash. It's only 2"x3.5" max. Anyone know if it's possible to stick a LCD in there?

          I also have an old laptop display sitting around, anyone know if its possible to hook that up to a standard pc?

            The guy who made the MazdaPC mp3 thing used an old nec versa 9.5" lcd laptop display that he ripped a part and made it work with his system..

              That's EXACTLY what I have! I just can't find, who exactly are you talking about? I gotta talk to this guy!

                I wrote to that Mazda guy a while back and said that a lot of people would be interested in the schematics of connecting a laptop screen to a PC.. and he said that he would add a section to his site that details how he did it.. so keep checking back there. .

                  but what is his site? or is it something else, I've only heard to him referred to as the "mazdapc" guy...

                    I think its

                    you can get to it through the mp3car examples link at the main page for this web page (did that make any sense? )

                      How is my web site "gay"? What do you have against my product, my website, and lastly a minority group that has different sexual preference than we do? You're full of hate man!! Take your hate crimes elsewhere.
                      It's no secret that EIO sells LCD modules for $5, but have you ever tried soldering thin wires to DB25 connector? Or tried to find a 10K ohm potentiometer in your locality?
                      Kiwi LCDs are ready to plug and play. No soldering work or tiresome search for the parts is needed. FYI, another LCD seller whose name I don't want to mention sell 20x4 lcds for $105. We plan to sell the same prodct in a near future for half that price.
                      My point being--I'm not outragesously overcharging anyone.
                      To folks who posted information about TimeLine and All Electronics do you realize TimeLine doesn't have a website, and 20x6 LCDs All Electronics sell doesn't have EL backlight and HD44780 chipset which is ESSENTIAL to interface LCD modules with DB25 parallel port?
                      If you want to criticize my product let's be factual, no gay bashing comments or petty badmouthing. I'm open to suggestions and comments.
