Hello Danna,We have provided the provision for switching ON LCD backlight in few of the Dev kits by connecting 0E resistor to pin 15 of the LCD display. By using backlight LCD you can get better viewing angles also.Ronak Desai
Just a thought, but you can contact manufacturers representatives, bring them in
for a meeting, and they can show you current technology displays. Discuss what's
changed, contrast/view angle/various enhancements. And many will meet your
cost goals with a superior display.
As an aside, B/L does not always intrinsically mean you get better viewing angles.
Look at papers on the optical path, and various problems, solutions, and phenomena.
