Title: SEIRO I&E M4032 LCD Amp Hour Giveaway
Post by: shamanjoe on August 30, 2013, 03:17:45 am
Hi all. I was wondering if anybody else, like me, listened to the Amp Hour, found Dave, and migrated over to this forum.

I got the SEIRO I&E M4032 LCD display which was a giveaway from a sponsor some months ago, and I was wondering if anybody has the pinout for it. I have found all sorts of data for the display driver chips on the back of the LCD, but nothing on the pinout of the  board itself. I believe it's a 42x2 character display, and it has a 15pin header wired to it. Other than that, I don't know much about it, it was new-old stock that was being given away to listeners. Thanks Again!

Scott

You might have more luck looking for SEIKO, not SEIRO. This was a fairly common display 10-20 years ago. I successfully downloaded some datasheets when I got mine.

I don't think I can attach PDFs, and custom search engines don't give linkable results but try these links:

Another interesting reference is shown below:

http://wpc.306e.edgecastcdn.net/80306E/onsetcomp_com/files/manual_pdfs/8TXB_Man.pdf (http://wpc.306e.edgecastcdn.net/80306E/onsetcomp_com/files/manual_pdfs/8TXB_Man.pdf)

In section 7 (page 317)  it says it has the exact same interface as the Seiko M1632 and a short schematics.

Thanks very much. The name is at the very edge of the PCB, so the top of the K really does look like an R, at least to me  :palm:

I'll post some pics once I get it up and running!
