Below is the Pinout and Pin Description of 16×2 LCD Module: 16×2-LCD-Module- Pins used to send Command or data to the LCD. In 4-Wire. The function of this IC is to get the Commands and Data from the MCU and process them to display meaningful information onto our LCD. Matrix Multimedia LCD Display LCD Display datasheet . To send a command to the LCD, data must be sent in two steps, the MSB followed by the LSB [byte.

Okay lets start from basic.

This high-density System-in-Package SiP integrates controller, power switches, and support components. Here is the datasheet. BF — Busy Flag. A 16×2 LCD means it can display 16 characters per line and there are 2 such lines. But when you use 4 bit mode you need to send the same data as lower 4 bits called nibble and higher 4 bits. Specifically stm32lRB micro controller.

Initialization by internal Reset Circuit. E line is negative edge triggered for write while it is positive edge triggered for the read.

You are right mark P1. A very clear explanation. How are you giving 5V to your LCD? Whereas in 8 bit mode we can send the 8-bit data directly in one stroke since we use all the 8 data lines. The first 3 commands are usually not required but are recomended when you are using 4-bit interface.


Thank you for pointing out those mistakes. Busy Flag is an status indicator flag for LCD. Or you may use text editor and save as. Also see to it that your circuit has a common ground. But I couldn’t control the relay since the output is 2. This stands for read or write. In the next section of the tutorial we will see the initialization with some of the coding examples in C as well as assembly. Connected to a MCU pin and gets either 0 or 1.

Datasheet Link Please download the datasheet because a datasheet tells you everything there is to know the electrical parameters, command registers, pin-outs and so on.

In the character generator RAM, the user can rewrite character patterns by program. Instead we simply put a certain ammount of delay usually to uS. There are four categories of instructions that:. If initially you got the output then it means that either the LCD is not getting proper supply or its blown. Is your controller getting reset when you press the button? These modules are preferred over seven segments and other multi segment LED s.

Later in this tutorial i will explain how to use Xommands area to make custom character and also making animations to give nice effects to your application. The timing diagram given in datasheet tells about the minimum delay between the level transitions.

Sorry about the errors. Log in or register to post Comment.


Lets say we want to write the Bell pattern at second pattern location. So that way when you press the button the led will blink and you will come to know whether it is working or not. You send the command word as well as the data to be written on this bus.

Everything is same as we have done in the initialization routine. Share if you liked it. D0-D3 are No connection. Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here There is a matter that I would like to discuss with you as I need some help. Information like position of dommands, status completion interrupts etc. I really find all datashee information helpful. So check that it is getting 5V.

The busy state lasts for 10 ms after VCC rises to 4. My lcd is able to print integers through this code but prints garbage when I send a string. Could you please explain this concisely. I recommend you to try all the possible entry modes and see the results, I am sure you will be surprised. We just send the bytes one by one. Email required Address never commandss public.
