i have a MIC10937 V. F. Alphanumeric Display Controller and i want to use a Basic Stamp 2 to control it. i have no clue how to use the SEROUT. so if anyone can give me a sample code for this chip i would appriciate it.

Examples of SEROUT abound in PBASIC Help.

i know that but i have no clue what baud rate to use. and the chip has a serial clock in. i have no clue where it would go. and also i have no clue on the data to send to it.

So, it looks like you need to find the datasheet for your display controller. Since it uses synchronous data you will need to use shiftin and shiftout.

Here is the data sheet. if someone could make a code that i could just modify a value for different words. it would be greatly appreciated

ok i just took a look at the SHIFTOUT command. from what i understand from it and the data sheet: SHIFTOUT 0, 1, MSBFIRST, [00000001]

should display the letter A.

correct me if i am wrong
