Backlit LCD


Orangutan 328
Trying to locate the backlit 2 lines X 8 characters pin compatible with Orangutan SV 328

Any ideas please ???



Hello, Kris.

We do not carry any backlit 8x2 LCD’s, and we do not have any specific recommendations for a supplier. You might be able to find an LCD compatible with the HD44780 parallel interface that has a backlight with an Internet search. Please note, you will probably need some additional connections to control the LED for the backlight with the Orangutan.



Thanks for replay.
At least have specification for parallel port.
It should easier to find compatible part.
Having extra wires to LCD is not an issue.

With kind regards Kris
