... or does it?
In our products, we are using character LCDs (with backlight) of the two most common size, the one with ~5mm character height and the one with ~8mm character height.
Because of stocking reasons we were using the 1x16 pin LCD types but we got sick of the cable assembly and we thought to move on to the 2x8 pin types.
The problem is that our local distributors say there is no large 2x16 LCD with 2x8 pins and that's what we need most!
After some research
it seems to be true.
So I'm asking, has anybody actually seen a large 2x16(1602) LCD with double row pins(2x8)?
Am I missing something?
Maybe it is because they think that the high backlight current cannot pass via the 0.05" pitch cable?
