Hi All,

I have just purchase my first LCD board for tinkering.

Rather than soldering pins etc tot , are there appropiate connectors for fixing to the device so it could be easily swapped? if so, where?

Thanks

Mark

Tinkering? Like on a breadboard? I use header pins. I've got several different modules. One has a single row of 16 pins, so I just soldered the pins, plugs right in. I've got one that is a double row of 7. I used header pins for it, and made a ribbon cable with IDC sockets on each end, double row on one side, single on the other. Have a couple with weird connections, which I haven't tried to use yet.

Thanks Nigel, I have looked at your tutorials (Which I will get round to when I am a little bit more knowledgable), your LCD module uses a connector which is soldered directly to the LCD "bit".

I was hoping for a connector which didnt mean any soldering.

Considering there are a number of different LCD types, none of which seem to have pluggable connectors, that seems rather hopefull?.

Some types have a connector where you can solder straight pins to it, then plug that directly into a socket.
