  • I was able to get this to work on the Arduino by just using the backpack code and the Datasheet as a ref. I converted Hex to Dec. and it looks to work fine. I also added a clear screen at the end of my code to keep character drifting out. Hooking it up through a Serial to USB cable helped in debugging calls.
    //draw box mid screen
    Serial.print(124, BYTE);//0x7C
    Serial.print(15, BYTE);
    Serial.print(0, BYTE);
    Serial.print(30, BYTE);
    Serial.print(135, BYTE);
    Serial.print(100, BYTE);
    Serial.print(1, BYTE);
    An Arduino .h file is next.

No public wish lists :(
