LCD Custom Characters

Custom Characters on LCD using PIC – MPLAB XC8

I hope that you already go through our tutorial, Interfacing LCD with PIC Microcontroller - MPLAB XC8. HD44780 compatible controllers used in these LCDs allows us to define 8 custom characters in addition to the standard pre-programmed characters. In this tutorial we will learn, how to create custom characters on LCD using PIC Microcontroller and MPLAB XC8 compiler. DDRAM, CGROM and CGRAM CGROM - Character Generator ROM This is the memory which holds 5x8 or 5x10 dot patterns of predefined characters in [...]

16x2 Green Character LCD Module

Interfacing LCD with Arduino Uno

16x2 character LCD display is a very basic LCD module which is commonly used in electronic projects. 16x2 means it can display 2 rows of 16 characters (columns). Its other variants such as 16x1, 16x4 etc are also available. These LCDs are usually made using HD44870 compatible controllers. In this tutorial we will see how to interface a 16x2 Character LCD display with Arduino Uno development board. Arduino provides built in libraries for interfacing HD44870 compatible LCDs. In a 16x2 [...]
