Hi there,

I am starting a new design for an industrial project. Basically it is a small embedded system and we have to add a small display in order to give the operator some messages (alarms, current status, etc.).

We are going to use a basic and typical LCD, that's enough for this system, something with backlight and 16x4 or 20x4 characters.

The question is, which one is the most standard LCD for this project? Because I am afraid of using a part that could be hard or difficult to find in our usual dealers (Mouser, Farnell, Amidata) in 2 or more years. I need something we can buy easily when want to manufacture more PCBs.

Any idea or advice?
