You might want to also look for graphical Noritake VFD displays for
example, http://www.noritake-elec.com/, you can find PDFs with exact
dimensions on their website (at least it was possible some time ago,
haven't checked recently), and even data sheets with the command set if
there is no driver yet, in graphlcd-base (used by vdr-graphlcd for
example). I have a 128x64 800A series and am very pleased with it.
