Hy

I´d like to connect a lcd (ttl 5V ;generic) to my microcontroller(cmos
3.3V, at91eb55).
I understand that it would be a good idea to use a open drain output
to drive the lcd. But what happens if I set the io-pin to input mode to
read the status register from the lcd ? Can the lcd drive the voltage
level ?

if the lcd has TTL input, you can drive the lcd with 3.3V without a
open-drain! because the Vih (Input Voltage High) begin at about 2V! and
certainly the microcontroller is input 5V tolerant!
excuse me for my english!
