    I'm look for an LCD that will work with PIC16f684/688 or really any 14 pin PIC since this is what I am able to program.

    I found this one
    http://www.junun.org/MarkIII/datasheets/162A0LED.pdf

    It looks from the datasheet that when working in 4bit mode it should take 6 pins (4bit + Read/write + instruction/data register). Seems this works for what I am looking for. I am missing anything here? It will not be for any specific project but more for just playing around with and getting aquiated to LCDs.

    Will this work for me?

    Thanks.

    ANY HD44780 Compatible LCD will work with 6 pins from a uc in 4 bit mode. There are tons of example LCD circuits and code on the web that are based around pic uc's...

    Don't forget the E pin, so seven in total.
