    character display kit??

    I see alot of touchscreen LCD display threads.... but I'd like to get a alphanumeric display kit. What's the cheapest or best website to go to take a look at these and purchase from?

    A blue backlight would be cool.... but I'm looking for a kit that has everything i'd need, including drivers that would allow me to do plugins with winamp or something like that.

    thank yoU!

    Matrix Orbital for the displays in USB, serial or parallel, in assorted colors & sizes
    LCDC for the software, with plugins for damn near anything you'd want, including WinAmp.
    Google 'em.

    If you'd done a search here, you'd know this, as well.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    I use Matrix Orbital (can see in Build PICs in my sig). I also made a plugin for OpenMobile (see thread here) to manage most models of their character type serially connected units.

    They are actually quite a delight to work with.
