LCD Ribbon Cable
I have a HD44780 4x20 LCD (uses Inmotion plugin that will soon be repleaced by Cobra player) that I intend to case (eventually) I dedcided on acrylic I think. However, Im not sure how far I can run the ribbon cable that I have now. I built a circuit with the potentiometer. This circuit has power/parallel and footers (the mother board jumper things) to connect the LCD ribbon cable to. I connect the LCD and the ribbon cable (the ribbon is soldered to the LCD but connects to the circuit) to the circuit. Right now, its about a foot long.
My first LCD setup had a cable that was about two meters and that worked fine
