LCD Custom Characters

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 [...]

HC-SR04 Ultrasonic Sensor

Interfacing HC-SR04 Ultrasonic Sensor with PIC Microcontroller
