'DV LCDs?'

Hi,
I've got a catalogue of LCDs, both
alpha-numerics & graphics, from a
Taiwanese co. called Data
International. Their 16x2 character
LCDs  (DV16210) look the same,
pin-wise, as the well known Hitachi
HD44780.

Question is, are they the same
programme wise? Can't find'em on
the web & the local distrib doesn't
have any data sheets. Anybody ever
heard of these modules? Are they
equivalent to the 44780?

Thanx for advice - PJH

Yes, I use DataVision displays.  They use the same Hitachi (or
clone) drivers as everybody else.

Pretty fly-by-night dist'y if they can't even send a data sheet...

Try:

and others for all the programming / wiring data.

Hi,

Just a word of thanks to the guys who answered my query about the DV
LCDs. Yep, they're the same - puts my mind at ease before I fork out
for a few. It's a fairsised Co. that's got'em, so that point about no
data sheets is right. Does seem a bit peculiar.

Cheers - PJH

Hi All
This isn't peculiar for oriental companies.  I have seen some of the
worst web pages from Japan and Taiwan.  They seem overjoyed to tell
you how wonderful their company is, show you large format color
pictures of the corporate offices, give you full financial details
about how much they sold last year and how much they have grown this
year but not one word about what they sell and how you can get one.

Kind a makes you wonder how they actually sold all that stuff last
year.
Are there any web masters for oriental companies here on the list??

I had the same problem when I was looking for a tractor once.  I went
to http://www.kabota.co.jp  What a waste of web space.  I was so upset that I
sent spam to everyone at the .kabota.co.jp domain complaining about
how useless their web page was.  I got about 20 or so responses.  Most
of them said they would pass my email along to those that could make a
change.  No changes yet.

Best regards
Dave Duley

Say, I never heard of anyone buying a TRACTOR on the internet before! Did
they gift wrap it like Amazon does with their books?(Jus' jokin...)

 Sounds quite "par for the course" for "clone" manufacturers.  Why
publish data when someone else has done the hard bit for you?

 Like the clone PIC chips, you just take a design prototyped on the
original devices and a middle-man makes a buck by out-sourcing the part
supply to the clone firm instead of the original.  Sounds like common
practice in SEA.
