I have a “dumb” product that has a lcd on it that shows some numbers and I want to have this data sent to the Photon so that I can do stuff with it.
What I went to do is actually remove the LCD and connect the wires to a photon so that the numbers will now be accesible from the internet.
Do you think this is feasable? What should I do to achieve this?
After doing some reasearch, the lcd is a multiplexed LCD and I found some sample C code here to DRIVE the specific LCD.
CODE (the files are called lcd)
For more information on the LCD, look for the app notes AN563 from Microchip, AN016202-0404 from Zilog, and the especially AN8000.13 from Semtech.
Will this be possibe or too complicated of a thing to do?
