New LCD device support: USB2LCD+

We've added support for character based LCD displays using the USB2LCD+ protocol, as described at:

Coder for Life - Project - USB2LCD+

You can enable the LCD device from AIDA64 / main menu / File / Preferences / Hardware Monitoring / LCD. After enabling it, make sure to set the LCD size (on the same page of the AIDA64 Preferences), since USB2LCD+-capable devices will not provide such information to AIDA64. Currently the following LCD sizes are supported:

16x2

16x4

20x2

20x4

The only thing needed to enable this feature is having the appropriate USB2LCD+ drivers installed, and the LCD to be connected to a USB port. You can verify if your device is USB2LCD+ compliant by finding the device on the Devices / USB Devices page in AIDA64, and checking its Device ID. It should be 5BCD-5BCD.

You can find the new AIDA64 beta update at:

http://www.aida64.com/downloads/latesta64xebeta

Please let us know if you find any difficulties enabling or using this new feature. Also let us know if you've got another kind of LCD device that is currently unsupported by AIDA64. BTW, Adafruit, Dangerous Prototypes HD44780, LPT (Parallel Port Connected) HD44780, Odroid-Show, picoLCD 20x4, Pyramid, Roccat Valo, Wallbraun LUI LCDs are also supported now by the latest AIDA64 beta.

Regards,
