I received and tested. Your product is really nice. This is what I exactly want it. Thanks for quick shipping and supporting.
I forgot when purchasing that this does not have pins on it to plug into a breadboard and I didn’t have any headers at home. I cut the leads off of some rarely used resistors and soldered them in for this. Not exactly how it was meant to be done, I don’t think, but it worked for me!
This the the one.
Works as described. Gave me an excuse to visit the new Sparkfun building. Very nice!
I have just used the 16x2 LCD display with the DG-5 emulator and it works fine. No problems whatsoever! I’d probably buy some more.
No complains. Easy to setup. Worked on the first try (I use an mbed board and the TextLCD library did all the work for me),
