Very nice to see these. I've been needing this for a project that maybe I can finally complete. I used a Noritake Character VFD but the 36 volts and glass are a problem as is the size, about 4mm too wide. I got your last two NHD-0420Z-RN-GBW devices and while a slight bit too narrow, would have been fine, if I could get more. However, I just found last week that you took the displays and married them to an interface board. This is great as the redesign on the VFD was to use a 2.8" OLED graphic display using U8Glib, which while it worked, the overhead to run the graphics stuff made the display sluggish. I only need a 4 line character display. And it has to fit 93mmX34mm. The new NHD-0420CW series is ideal. Except I can't make it work, but I'll post that in the forum. I either got two bad ones from Mouser or did something incorrect on interface, or (most likely) can't substitute what looked like drivers that were identical. Your site and the world is extremely thin on info for this unit and the driver, and a sample Arduino code. I work it up on Arduino then eventually upload code to an Atmel chip.
