I just ordered the 16x2 LCD- CFAH1602B-YYB-JP and i noticed that it has 16 pins. I have wired up a 10 pin LCD from Bgmicro that used an EL Backlight, it didnt work (4-bit POS) so i am ordering a new one (very cheap budget). I was just wondering if those extra two pins were for the LED backlight. If someone could post a the pinouts for the last two pins i would appreciate it. Or just tell me which one is ground and which one is 5v. Also, becuase these are HD44780's they use the same pin outs as the ones from BgMicro (also used HD44780).
