there is a driver for displays once made by Wirz (sli driver ) which
was acquired by Parallax years ago. I have no knowledge if today's
devices will work, but comparing the 'product documentation for 2x16 and
4x20 character serial LCD displays'  with the code in our driver it
will not work.
Writing a new driver should not be too difficult as the device uses a
simple ASCII protocol.
