Hi, I picked up a couple of these at work in the parts-trash bin as they had small scratches on the casing and it is a display used in some of my companies products. (I love this aspect of my job, all the parts I can pull from scrap!)
I guess like most of the stuff they use, this one is a bit off. However, it is the largest GLCD (12.8cm x 6.8cm viewable) with a bight backlight (CCFL) I have seen and the quality is amazingly high. I would like to use it in my Home Theater setup because of these properties. I already have a flyback converter that can drive the CCFL, might also show a 555 timer circuit capable of the same...anyway....

It is a 4-bit parallel display that uses

- LA6324 for driving http://www.onsemi.com/pub_link/Collateral/LA6324NM-D.PDF
- SDN8080 for segment control http://www.tianma-usa.com/web/uploads/controller/20080323003315_SDN8080G_V6_Sep_28_2005.pdf
Anyone seen another display like this? If so can you point me in the right direction? Which code library would be closest for me to mod to my specifications?
I haven't seen any other 4-wire parallel graphic displays before, and I am willing that a lot of other people have not either.
