Great stuff. I'd like to see more of this sort of thing, simple hardware interfacing with linux. I'm trying to order one of these lcd displays right now but there are no UK suppliers. I guess I'll have to try the German one.

COOL! Gotta get one! I'm curious as to how you decided to use that particular brand and model LCD, and any others that would also work.

A very interesting article.
From: Andy [ date: 2000-07-16 ]
It was a very nice written piece. If there were
USB LCD displays I would buy one right away.
Using the serial port seams a bit old.

Back to good old days of digital electronics..
Now that I can merge SW with HW with minimum
knowledge, (and everyone can!) I'll take my solder down from dust..

Check out http://www.crystalfontz.com ,a MUCH cheaper alternative to the Matrix Orbital. They also have a fully documented library for the thing, too. For a 20 char x 4 line display (with a backlight) it's about $65. Check out http://cajun.sourceforge.net, a car MP3 jukebox that can use a Matrix Orbital or a CrystalFontz. Also check http://lcdproc.omnipotent.net, a neat-o Client/Server app for LCD serial-outs. Also, if you want, check out http://thelocust.org/cajun, my MP3 car jukebox project

Thanks for the article, this is great stuff. I am looking for a schematic for a direct input to a 8 bit Micro for a Smart Card Reader. My objective is to have a Small LCD Display to a 8 Bit Micro to which a Smart Card Reader would interface. The messages are short thus a Small LCD would suffice. The information captured by the Smart Card Reader to be transfered to a Central CPU via RS-485. To summarize:-
a). 8 Bit Micro
b). Smart Card Reader interfaced directly to Micro
c). Small LCD Display
d). RS-485 Output
Thanks
