This is a thick dot-matrix version of a very popular classic computer, and it's normally used on word processors, electric billboards, etc. Probably a great font!This is a clone
Bumbu kacang is the actual name of Indonesian Salad’s (also known as gado-gado) peanut sauce. The round shape of the typeface inspired by the shape of lontong. The curvy part in the middle and the dots represent the peanut sauce.
A little experiment - squares with rounded corners. The resulting design is a 5×7 dot matrix font with an (unintentional) art deco sensibility.
Alternate version of connect the bots, reminiscent of dot matrix printers back in the day...

Inspired by electronic circuitry, combined with a retro flavour in the structure of the letterforms, this display font is well suited to any computer / electronics or technology related application.
The word ‘systematic’ was taken as a starting point for development, and led me to draw upon a personal interest in the inner workings of electronics. The ordered chaos of all the connections running hither and thither is extraordinarily beautiful.This is a clone of connect the bots
Base ASCII plane from the character generator ROM of the ST7036 LCD controller, built as a fixed pitch font. This is missing the characters mapped on 0x00 through 0x1f, the first half of which could be user-defined characters loaded in RAM at run time, and hence really difficult to define in a font. I've also left off the katakana characters mapped from 0x80 to 0xFF, as I don't need them for my current requirement.
All charcters are 5x7 dots in a 6x8 dot character cell. All 6x8 dots are implemented on the panel, and the panels typically provide blank columns and rows between character cells, so I'm not entierly sure why the standard ROM image doesn't ever use the 6th column or 8th row. To mark the cell boundaries, I've included tick marks in each corner where that pixel is blank. If no extra leading or tracking is applied, those ticks will abut.
I've defined all of the obvious space characters to be blank, and also defined the Unicode NOT SIGN (U+00AC) as a blank to make it easier to draw screen images.
