LCD Glass Panel - Liquid Crystal Display

LCD Display – Fundamentals

LCD or Liquid Crystal Display is a flat electronic display which is very commonly used in digital watches, calculators, laptops, televisions etc. It make use of light modulating properties of  liquid crystal and polarization of light for its operation. Low power consumption, less thickness and less weight of LCD enables its use in battery powered and portable applications. Prerequisites Light is an electromagnetic radiation which stimulates sight and make things visible. It is produced by vibration of electric charges, having both electric [...]

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 [...]

Custom Characters on LCD using PIC – MikroC

I hope that you already go through our tutorial, Interfacing Character LCD with PIC Microcontroller - MicroC Pro. These character based LCDs are commonly made using HD44780 compatible controllers. It allows us to define 8 custom characters in addition to the standard pre-programmed characters. In this tutorial we will learn to define our own custom characters using MikroC compiler. DDRAM, CGROM and CGRAM CGROM - Character Generator ROM This is the memory which holds 5x8 or 5x10 dot patterns of predefined characters [...]

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 [...]

16x2 Character LCD

Interfacing LCD with PIC Microcontroller – Hi Tech C

16x2 Character LCD is a very basic LCD module which is commonly used in electronics projects and products. It contains 2 rows that can display 16 characters. Each character is displayed using 5x8 or 5x10 dot matrix. It can be easily interfaced with a microcontroller. In this tutorial we will see how to write data to an LCD with PIC Microcontroller using Hi-Tech C Compiler. Hi-Tech C has no built in LCD libraries so we require the hardware knowledge [...]

GLCD

Interfacing GLCD with PIC Microcontroller

I have already posted about Interfacing character LCD with PIC Microcontrollers. By using GLCD (Graphical LCD) we can present information in a better and user friendly way by using any patterns or shapes. Graphical LCDs are preferred where both character and graphical representation are required. Compared to Character LCD, GLCD is a bit complex and we need a powerful graphic library. MikroC PRO for PIC Microcontrollers provides powerful built in libraries for that.  MikroC Pro - Graphic LCD Library MikroC Pro for PIC [...]

LCD interfacing with PIC Microcontroller – MikroC

A PIC Microcontroller can  be easily made to communicate with LCD by using the built in Libraries of MikroC. Interfacing between PIC and LCD can be 4-bit or 8-bit. The difference between 4-bit and 8-bit is how data are send to the LCD. In the 8-bit mode to write an 8-bit character to the LCD module, ASCII data is send through the data lines DB0- DB7 and data strobe is given through the E line. But 4-bit mode uses only 4 data lines. In this mode [...]
