What gauge wire are these crimp pins meant to accept?
about 5 years ago
mikegoelzer: Why does the datasheet on this page say “V2.5” but the schematic say “V2”? If I order the item on this page, am I buying v2 or v2.5?
I’m asking b/c I’m in a space constrained situation where the serial backpack just isn’t going to fit. The datasheet (2.5) shows a picture with a backpack (soldered on?), but nothing else on this page suggests that any backpack is required to talk with this device thru 3-wire serial.
Basically, if I can’t accommodate the backpack’s size, is it a mistake to buy this?
Having ordered this exact LCD myself, I can say that aside from the issue mentioned in my other comment, it looks exactly like the picture. No bulky backpack module, everything is on a single board. Pretty sleek, really.
Also, the mounting holes are too small for the #4-40 screws that most Sparkfun boards will handle. Just FYI, I found this out about 45 seconds ago…
Is it just me, or are the solder holes for VDD, GND, and TX near the JST connector too small to accept standard pin headers? Perhaps I just need to use a little more force? I see that one of the pictures of this module shows what appear to be standard headers installed in that location, so I am confused..
No public wish lists :(
