    Need help to Replace VFD with LCD Dispaly.

    Hi,
    I have a cu4002scpb-t63a VFD installed on a machine which is now broken.
    I want to replace this VFD with HD44780 LCD but the problem is this VFD uses i80 Parallel interface (D7-D0,/WR,/CS,BUSY) and HD44780 uses M68 intererface(D7-D0,RS,R/W,E).
    Is there anyway to replace this VFD with LCD??

    replacing VFD with LCD require some code change in the application.

    Re: Need help to Replace VFD with LCD Dispaly.

    VFD is installed on a Power Loom so changing code is not an option. Is it possible to take i8080 protocol input and convert it to M68 by using micro controller or any IC??

    for conversion of protocol , the IC or controller based option may work.
    But what about the data formats requirments and substitution of registers?
