I have a device with a lcd (1602) that needs to be replaced but I'm not sure about finding a compatible one.
The part number is BC-1602B-SBYA-I-B-A00 and according to the specification pdf it has an ST7066 controller which should be compatible with the HD44780 and operates with 5v. But looking at the usual lcds they have their pins on the top side of the pcb, while mine are on the bottom also starting with the pin 14. I don't know if there is reason for that like compability.
My experience is close to 0. Could I have a problem with the usual displays for arduino?(connected through cables) If not, what features should I look for?
