I've dealt with interfacing a very simple LCD display with a microcontroller, so I get the basic concepts. I'm trying to interface something a bit more involved.
I'm a bit confused on why you would need a LCD controller board to interface a LCD that displays nothing more than simple characters (no graphics). Take this LCD from Electronic Assembly for example. It has a table of command for the LCD controller SSD1803. Does this mean I cannot interface this LCD screen without a lcd controller board to my microcontroller?
