MCP23S17 fast 16-bit I/O expander on board Industry standard SPI communication GLCD/LCD contrast potentiometer on board IDC10 interface
The Serial LCD/GLCD Adapter Board enables you to connect a 128×64-pixel GLCD or a 2×16- or 4×20-character LCD to your development system and save MCU pins. A 16-bit I/O expander is provided on the board, thus decreasing the number of MCU pins needed for running your display. The expander features SPI clock speeds up to 10 MHz for higher-throughput applications. The board connects to a development system via an attached ribbon cable with a 2×5-pin female IDC10 connector on the end. SMD jumpers allow you to alter the pinout of the 2×5-pin connection if required for your system.
Use in your own design While this board was created originally for mikroElektronika's development systems, it's certainly possible to use in your own project. To do so, you may want to pick up IDC10 box headers that you can solder onto your PCB, or an EasyTEST board and jumper wires to wire it up however you need to.
Note: This board is designed to use 5V power supply only.
