The Downstream Board – Alphanumeric LCD Screen (BL0169) provides a 20 x 4 character alphanumeric display compatible with the standard HD44780 type displays.
There are a number of key differences between the LCD display on the Alphanumeric LCD board and the standard HD44780 type displays, which are listed below:
- Scrolling and blinking cursor display commands are not supported
- Printing characters to the display automatically move through lines 0,1,2,3 rather than the usual 0,2,1,3
- Enhanced character set support
