I'm new to this and would like some advice. The project I would like to do needs a screen that would be able to display about 5 words at a time coming from a memory bank of about 1000-2000 words. I would like to be able to change these words from time to time.
What I would need is some type of programmable display, a micro-controller to run it, then some way to store 1000-2000 words that can be edited.
Is there a micro-controller that would be able to store that many words? My understanding is that each letter would take up a byte of data (at least the ascii characters). If the controller cannot store that many words I was thinking about storing the words in a micro sd card and use a controller that could read that. ideally costs would be minimized. Any advice is welcome.
