There are LCD compatible character VFDs for both 4- and 8-bit parallel interface. There are even LCD character compatible VFDs with extended functions for graphics (character LCD emulation + graphics). Check out for more.

I have a nice Lcdproc system up and running using a 20x2 HD7740 4bit parallel interface. I need a brighter display to go behind a smoked front panel and think VFD is the way to go.

The VFD I have seen is either RS232 or 8bit Parallel compatible. Does Anyone know if there is a fixed set of standards for these things and if LCDd has drivers which would run this!
