    Futaba 20x4 with a 2x8 pin format - pinouts anyone?

    I just picked up a Futaba 20x4 off of ebay, but I can't find the pin-outs for this sucker anywhere. It's a 2x8 pin interface, so I didn't want to guesstimate using the 2x7 format.

    Can any of you guys help?

    I just sent an e-mail to info@futaba.com
    Hopefully they'll get back to me, I'll let you know if they do.

    yeah, I'm working the same angle.

    BTW - if you want to get the same one I got, it only cost me $24 from an ebay seller. Or you can duke it out in the auctions for a pair of them. Just ebay search for Futaba VFD and it'll come up - they've got a regular stock of these displays, (SIC)

    yeah, my cost was $20 + $4 shipping. Problem is that the seller doesn't have a datasheet - and it connector isn't the same as the common 2x7 connector.
