Tuve que cambiar la primera que compré porque empezó a oiscilar la iluminación de la pantalla.
Por lo demás todo muy bien, buena presentación y buen funcionamiento.
The display is clear and the characters are legible. I do wish this display supported more than 32 characters. As for interfacing, that is very easy. Just a hand-full of switches (and one potentiometer) and an ASCII chart you don’t even need a microcontroller (but you’ll only be able to print one character every few seconds without one).
