LCD & Button shield that will work with Fez Panda?


#1

Sorry if this is a dumb question - I am new to all this.

I am looking for a LCD & button shield that will work with a Fez Panda running NETMF 4.1. Something like this would be ideal: http://www.adafruit.com/products/772

Will it work with the Fez Panda? If not, can someone recommend something similar that will?

Thanks,
Jason

Ok - seems I can’t post links yet…

The link was suppose to be to the “LCD Shield Kit w/ 16x2 Character Display” on the AdaFruit.com web site.

That display has special circuitry to save some pins. I recommend something more direct, like this one http://www.dfrobot.com/index.php?route=product/product&filter_name=display&product_id=51

And here is the driver for it :slight_smile:

Thanks for the info Gus. I went with this shield since it was available locally: http://osepp.com/products/shield-arduino-compatible/16x2-lcd-display-keypad-shield/

Using your driver it worked great.

Since then I have found a drive for the AdaFruit LCD shield in case anyone is looking for it: http://netmftoolbox.codeplex.com/wikipage?title=Supported%20devices&referringTitle=Home
