'[OT]: PicView LCD Module Mounting/Connecting'

Hello,

I bought a Picview LCD module from MPJA, and it's a great LCD module,
perfect size, except mounting it appears to be a problem. It has 22 gold
plated connectors, with no through holes for soldering on a 22 pin header. I
could solder on 22 wires or a 22 wire ribbon cable, but there must be an
easier way.

The LCD module has the exact same physical structure as a 30 pin SIMM, and
in fact, it fits perfectly into a 30 pin sim socket, except it would
eventually fall out as only one side of the module is actually clipped into
the 'clippy-bit' of the socket.

So, where can I get 22 pin SIMM sockets? :)

I'm thinking I won't be getting any of those any time soon :) (could someone
please prove me wrong? :)

Also, there is no way to screw the module down, as the backlight connection
gets in the way of one of the simm-like-socket-index-holes, that could be
used as screw holes.

So, I'm lost... I have been thinking about using a zebra-strip to connect
the module to my board, but then there's the question of how to I hold the
LCD-Module/Zebra Strip-PCB sandwich together.

Could anyone provide any suggestions? has anyone worked with this module
before?

thanks in advance,
Keelan Lightfoot

Keelan,

Yes, I had basically the same experience.  What I finally done was
to solder a small "L" bracket to eack side of the metal frame around
the LCD.  I carefully took the metal frame off the assembly,
soldered the "L" brackets on, and then reassembled the unit.
What might be a better solution is to epoxy the brackets to the metal
frame.  That would eliminate the disassembly, solder, reassembly part
of the process.   Anyway, I've modified two units like this and both
are still in service and still working like a champ.  This probably
would be too much trouble if the unit you are using it on has a high
volume, but for a few, it's workable.

Also, just as an FYI, I have had some success in the past of taking
a 30 pin SIMM socket, cutting a section out of it, and the
supergluing it back together.   I done this on a prototype unit
once.  Again, not optimal, but workable for a limited volume piece.

Hope this helps you out.

                                         Regards,

                                           Jim

use a square pin header strip cut to 20pin soldered on to fingers of Lcd
Module and use a mating socket for connecting to it.
