Apparently VCC is the +5 feed to the display, VEE is the display bias(?), I don' t
know what VO is, you need to check the one. Also, VEE can be either a negative OR a
positive bias, depending on the manufacturer, the value for VEE can range between
4volts to upwards of 40volts (usually DC, not AC). If you do put together a power
supply for the LCD, keep in mind that you *must* sequence the VCC & VEE supplies,
failure to proper sequence these voltages (during power on/off) WILL destroy the LCD
screen material very quickly.

Use the two LCD descriptors that you got from the mailing list, I think I send those,
and look them over, comparing the two sets of individual values. Then, while referring
to the Dragonball controller manual, look at what these settings are supposed to do. I
think that with a glance-thru of the manual the values should become clear, given the
two examples of descriptors that you now have.

Better yet, I placed them on the Resources page of the site,
'http://www.openhardware.net/ez328simm/resources.html', there is probably more people
who need the data as well.

Not a problem, I have commitments (?) for up to 16, there is four more to go, if I can
get a commitment from a cutstomers for future delivery of the LCD enabled product, I
can order them.
