I have just found a datasheet for the 1st unit - and the spec for the chipset T6963C that's inside it. Now before moving onto the next LCD, what's the give with these devices, do they fit into generic categories of protocol, or is it totally a non-standardised technical area. Found some PIC code, just need to figure out how to port it once I learn the PIC hardware by reading the LCD datasheet and marrying the I/O calls sensibly in my mind.
The LCD below is more mysterious, no clues on this one yet.
