GLiPIC provides an easy method of transferring images to the LCD as well as providing configurable code that can be pasted into your program

Above, the new GLiPIC super compact board. It measures a mere 1.9 x 2.5 inches! It houses a PIC 16F877, Max232, I2C eeprom along with an LM7805 power regulator.
Below, some examples of actual Glipic ‘art’ - a few are hand drawn directly in GLiPIC while others are bit mapped images (BMP format) loaded into GLiPIC and sent directly to the LCD or external eeprom. A 64 Kbit eeprom can hold up to 8 LCD display pages.
I have some KS0108 beta code available for testing. The files include the Windows GLiPIC application, Windows BINHEX utility, PBP code for glipic, and a couple of alphanumeric sets. I will be posting the terminal applications shortly.
