I am trying to start my first project to create a monitoring device which takes sensor measurements and displays them on a 20 character x 4 line (black on green) LCD screen.
Unfortunately, no such screen is available on GHIelectronics so I tried to find it on a different site but none of them have this screen with a gadgeteer connector on it.
Ideally, I was after a screen like this one,
, only in black-on-green instead of white-on-blue.
However, all I could find was this screen
,and this other one which is also “serial-enabled” (I dont’ understand what this means!?!),
, but I do not know how to connect these to the FEZ.
There used to be a product which converted the LCD pinouts to a Gadgeteer connector plug,
, but it is nearly impossible to find and also discontinued.
Does anybody know how to connect these non-gadgeteer LCD screens to the FEZ boards? Or how to modify a gadgeteer conection cable to attach one end to these LCDs (e.g. strip the wires for the plug on one end of the cable and solder them to the LCD board, then plug the other end straight into a FEZ board gadgeteer plug).
Also, not to rush this, but if possible I would like to understand this before the end-of-year discount expires.
P.S. Image files are attached in order of reference to products in my post.
Thanks for any help,
