    Hello.I was wondering if anyone know where I find any schematics for connecting a LCD display that uses a ribbon cable to a FFPGA or a basic microcontroller? I'm sorry if my question seems vague, but I asking for my own personal research.

    Hello,

    The connection and program needed to drive the LCD display is dependend on the type of display.
    There are dispalys that have a intelligent driver on it and those that have only dotwise capability, so you need to make the characters yourself.

    Good point. I was ASSUMING HD44780 compatible which is the most popular type for character displays but might not be what the OP has.

    This kind of LCD needs to be connected to a LCD controller which provides the H-SYNC and V-SYNC signals.
