Product Overview

The MC21609A12W-VNMLY is a 16-character x 2 lines Alphanumeric LCD with negative transmissive polarizer and LED backlight (yellow-green). It features RW1063 controller IC. This system interface chip has all four kinds of interface type with MPU, 4-bit bus, 8-bit bus, serial and fast IZC '3' interface. 4-bit bus or 8-bit bus is selected by DL bit in the instruction register. During read or write operation, two 8-bit registers are used. One is data register (DR), the other 2' is instruction register (lR). The data register(DR) is used as temporary data storage place for being written into or read from DDRAM/CGRAM, target RAM is selected by RAM address setting instruction. Each internal operation, reading from or writing into RAM, is done automatically. So to speak, after MPU reads DR data, the data in the next DDRAM/CGRAM/ICON RAM address is transferred into DR automatically. Also after MPU writes data to DR, the data in DR is transferred into DDRAM/CGRAM/ICON RAM automatically.
