Has anyone used OrientDisplay's 16x2 lcd board with Arduino?

I'm trying to hook up a LCD display to an Arduino Duemilanove and need help. It is a 16x2 SPI bus device from Orient Display. Part number is AMC1602AR-B-B6WTDW-SPI
  Here is the information  from the mfg website on this product.

I'm a relative newbie and haven't done anything with the SPI bus. It is confusing for me because of all the different names given to the 4 pins of the SPI bus!

HELP please!

OK if I understand your question you can’t tell if you are connecting the
pins right because you are not sure what the pins do.

1 LED+ backlight

2 LED-
backlight

3 VSS = GND
= 0 volts = ground

4 VDD = VCC
= +5 Volts = Supply Voltage

5 SCLK =
SCL = Logic H/L = Serial Clock in

6 SID = SDA
= SDIN = Logic H/L = Serial Data in

7 VO = VDD
= VCC =Supply Voltage for LCD = Contrast

8 CSB = D/C
= RW = Logic H/L = Chip Select = Data Command = Read Write

9 RS = RES
= Logic H/l = Register Select = Reset

10 NC = No
Conection

Then it
should connect to Arduino as a serial input LCD.

Ouch. That's a horrible datasheet. Its been badly assembled from the classic parallel display chip version. Best chance is to look on the Arduino website. SPI isn't hard, but they really have made it confusing.

That's a serial LCD. So look up how to use a Serial LCD with the arduino.
