I salvaged this display from work today out of a broken FastTrak timer system. I was pretty excited to see that the entire thing simply unplugged from the rest of the system and knew right away that I was going to try and get it working on my arduino uno. I was able to find the data sheet for it and it uses the T6963c LCD Controller.
Problem is, I have no idea where to start with this thing. I have the pinouts from the data sheet and there are 20 pins but am still unsure how to get this thing powered up. I do know the arduino will not supply enough power alone.
I wanted to see if anyone has any experience with this display. I would imagine its going to work really well with the arduino as soon as I can figure out how to get it wired up, then theres the issue of writing a sketch. I have never written my own, only modified sketches I have found online.
If anyone has some free time and would like to help me out with some more info or anything I would greatly appreciate it. I did a quick search of the forums but did not see anything on this particular display. I may have posted to soon and info could be there but I simply was unable to find it. Every forum I have ever been to and you don't search before asking questions you get yelled at for it so I apologize ahead of time.
Here is a link to the data sheet if anyone wishes to have a look.http://www.powertipusa.com/pdf/pg160128a.pdf
