Documentation for the controller is available from numerous sources on the Internet. You can also download it from Epson’s website.

Examples of LCD images created using the GLiPIC2 utility, a Windows application designed for use with the PicBasicPro (Ver 2.32) SED1330 programs available in the Benchware section.
