Title: Double Width Font NHD-0216CW
Post by: MatthewKerr on October 28, 2018, 12:01:48 AM
Hi. I have read that the NHD-0216CW supports double height font. Does it support double height double width font?

I am replacing eight seven segment (plus dot) displays with the NHD-0216CW. I am trying to work out if I can configure the NHD-0216CW to use fonts which appear as close as possible to my original 8x seven segment display i.e. each character is double height double width.

Thanks.

Hi Matthew,

Unfortunately the US2066 controller does not support double width characters, however there is an option to set a 6-dot width character vs. a 5-dot character in the Extended function set command list. (pg. 7 of the datasheet) http://www.newhavendisplay.com/specs/NHD-0216CW-AW3.pdf (http://www.newhavendisplay.com/specs/NHD-0216CW-AW3.pdf)
