Update (04/20/07): The original LCD modules are gone but we have new parts to give away! Read this post for more information.
Include a link to uC Hobby on your site or blog and I will send you a graphic LCD module. Your site must have content similar to uC Hobby or be relevant to the same topics of interest and I reserve the right to decide who receives a module. There is a limited number of LCD modules and I will give them away on a first come first serve basis. If you are unsure and want a confirmation before you do the link, just request a review. If your site is OK, I will reserve you a module for one week. The idea here is to get some inbound links to my site and to find other hobbyist who may have a use for the modules. The offer is retroactive in case you have already linked to uC Hobby. I don’t sell these modules and I am not collecting email or home addresses so don’t worry about that. I will update this post when they are all gone.
I will pay the shipping cost for normal mail in the US only. Sorry about the US restriction but I don’t want to deal with overseas shipping. I don’t warrantee these units and I can not accept any liability for any reason. The modules are unused and work as far as I know, I have not tested them. Send an email with a link to the site and the shipping address to firstname.lastname@example.org requesting the LCD module.
I have about 20 modules that are graphic 320×240 B/W with EL backlight. They do not have a built in controller so each scan line has to be output from your microcontroller or you can get an LCD controller. You should be able to make a nice graphics display using a fast ARM7 with at least 10K of RAM. Let me know about your project, I will reserve a second model and send it to you when you post about the project.
They have a 14 pin flex cable and a pad set for a 14 pin connector with the same connections. You will probably want to remove the flex cable and use the 0.1″ connector on the side. The display is small and thin as you can see in the pictures with the standard US quarter. Get the datasheet here.
This is not the graphic LCD seen in my prior post. I am playing with a different low cost graphic LCD that does include a controller. I will post some details on this project soon.
