The LCD connector

The most common LCD module is the DMF690N produced by OPTREX. Some previous versions exist, with more failure and less contrast. This unit has its own PCB. The LCD panel is a dot matrix of 640*64 pixels, the NRD7482. It is driven by nine CMS chips. One SED1610 : a 86 lines driver and eight SED1600 : 80 rows dirvers. Another IC is devoted to voltage generation. The module is connected by a special ribbon with 14 links on SK5.

14 is the left one, 1 is on the right in top view.
