  Can anyone recommend a some what inexpensive LCD for a beginner to
interface to a PIC16F8A?

   Also anyone have any suggestions for getting an EPIC programmer from ME
Labs to work with MPLAB 6.10? Is this even possible? I have checked google
but I haven't found much.

Thanks.

Any of the HD44780-module based LCD's should be suitable. You can get them in
1x8, 1x16, 2x16 etc configurations, and are relatively easy to learn.

You should be able to get a 2x16 for about $20 CAN, but probably cheaper since
the store I bought it from was kinda expensive.

Hey-

I'm a beginner too, but I've been looking at the Seiko Character LCDs ..
they range from $11-$23 so they aren't THAT expensive.  I saw them in the
Mouser catalog (just look in there, I think it's the only brand of LCD they
sell).  From their datasheet it doesn't look difficult to interface with but
it requires alot of pins.  (Of course, I was planning on using a shift
register so I could use less pins)

Since others have covered the LCD questions, I'll tackle the programmer
one. As far as I know, the only programmer that will work directly with
MPLAB (other than the Microchip ones, of course) is the WARP13 from
Newfound Electronics (http://www.newfoundelectronics.com). MELabs would
be the people to talk to about that. I could be wrong though, as per
usual :)

Take a look on e-Bay.  They almost always have a selection of
LCDs in the following category:

Business & Industrial:Electronic Components

You have to shop and bid carefully, but I've bought hundreds of
displays this way.

NEWFOUND ELECTRONICS is the only PIC programmer supplier other than
microchip, that I know of, that offers an MPLAB compatible programmer. They
have a list of resellers, and more info on the Warp-13 here --

If you're not picky about the LCD specifics (for now), you
may also want to look at similar HD44780-compatible units
from Alltronics, Jameco, etc for as low as $4 or $5 each
IIRC.

Cheers,

Thanks everyone for the suggestions, one other question though. I have
looked on Mouser and they seem to have some inexpensive character LCDs but I
can't figure out what kind of controller they have, I am looking for Hitachi
44780 compatible. Andy ideas? I emailed them but they haven't got back to
me.

Thanks
