The HD44870 is one of the most common LCDs out there, so I thought a page letting people know how to wire and use it would be helpful. GHI’s “LCD Keypad” shield is a great price, but for playing around with a cheap display or building a final product I think the information is helpful.
This is my first FEZ-related Wiki page, so constructive criticism would be appreciated. I plan on doing one per week, but I’ll be getting caught up - I have a couple additional “tutorial” Wiki pages coming.
Feel free to be blatant I’m sure I missed stuff, put little effort towards proofing. Also, I know there has been some confusion about driver licensing, so hopefully my usage of the GHI driver is okay if it has not yet been opensourced.
