Future Designs, Inc. LCD Demo Kit (LCD-DEMO-KIT)

Introduction

The LCD-DEMO-KIT is a low-cost hardware development tool which uses a two-chip solution to operate and control an LCD user interface. Powered by a single 3V coin cell battery, the board is controlled by a two-button user interface allowing you to control 8-character alphanumeric LCD displays with the board’s 128 segment-supporting PCF8562 I2C-based LCD driver. The on-board 10-pin header allows you to use any external ICP style programmer to edit and download source code to the reprogrammable flash microcontroller. With the board’s flexible layout, you can prototype new designs using any of the NXP LPC9103, LPC9107, and LPC93x microcontrollers.

The full kit includes the LCD demo board and a demo CD with source code, schematics, and ICP documentation.
