I’m trying to put together a Duemilanove compatible pinout board with a large LCD … for example the 3.5" LCD.
That won’t work with the Panda? Are there any large displays that will?
My main goal is a large, multi-color text display with some light graphics - as long as the graphics controller is offloaded I think I can do this with the Panda.
I’m trying to display some status for a reef tank, and want to turn some indicators yellow or red if parameters are off. The screen should be readable or at least the red indicator from across a room so the 2.8 inch displays are a tad too small.
Most serial character LCD’s are single color.
Why the Panda instead of the Cobra? There is an Arduino shield controller board that fits all my I/O requirements here:
need temp and a couple of BNC inputs, and a number of digital I/O lines for float controllers. I don’t see too many BNC inputs for the Gadgeteer or Cobra line. I could probably prototype it but getting them to work with PH and ORP probes is a little twitchy, so the prebuilt board would be nice.
II also need about 10-12 PWM outputs to dim high power LED lighting modules.
I would really like to work with .Net if possible, this my interest in the Panda II line - I just need a bigger display.

P.S. I poked around with search but didn’t see anything - please forgive me if I missed a thread.
