Hello...

Recently I buy a Hantronix (Powertip) 16x2 LCD with LED backlight-LCD-. I wanna use it to display info of my PC on it. I already see the guides here in the forums but I have some questions...Who is the better Serial Interface to use and the more cheapper? I see the Wirz sli, the Seetron BPK-000, the SerLCD -SerLCD info and one that Jameco sells named Trisys Serial LCD Interface Module Info Here.... what do you recommend me? With this serial interface I can use the normal programms like LCDCenter or something like that...

Thanks for your help.:)

The most important thing for PC applications is to make sure your display (LCD module + serial adapter) works with the software you like.

You will have to look at what hardware the software you are interested in supports. I have my doubts if very many software programs support the SerLCD, unless it emulates a known command set.

It will not work with CrystalControl, which is the only program with which we have any relation.

You would have to research the capabilities of other programs to see of they are compatible.

You would have to ask the software providers questions like: "Would your software work with Hantronix (Powertip) 16x2 LCD with LED backlight-LCD if it were connected to a SerLCD-SerLCD info?"
