How Does it Work?

Connect your system’s microcontroller to the serial LCD controller via a standard asynchronous serial port. Use simple ASCII commands to draw images, text, controls, and other interface elements. Controls report back over the serial line when activated or changed. Images are stored on the embedded LCD display’s controller board in flash memory.
