I believe you may want to mention in the description
that this has a common cathode led. I had a hard time
finding it in the datasheet.
I had read somewhere that this had the same pin15/16 wiring as the “LCD add-on Kit for SIK” which is a common Anode. I got concerned when I saw the datasheet for this LCD. But good news. The PCB is setup with the same pinout as the SIK add-in. It is setup with a common Anode. I modified my datasheet-PDF and renamed it as SF-version.
My PCB pinout is:
15 A (5v) - same as SIK Add-on
16 K-RED - same as SIK Add-on (except color)
So this was easy to setup, just swap boards.
But I agree that when I saw the contrast I will save this board for later and also wait for an RGB-on-black!
No public wish lists :(
