Easy Debugging Terminal using PIC16F84

Introduction This LCD terminal provide two modes of operation by selecting jumper J1. When J1 is open the terminal operate as a normal ascii display terminal, when J1 is closed the terminal displays the input serial data in hexadecimal format. This mode is useful for viewing raw data from the serial port output. Hardware Figure 1 shows the circuit diagram of the Easy Debugging Terminal. IC U2 a PIC16F84 mic ...

4 Bit LCD interfacing and programming with PIC Microcontroller

LCD displays operate in two modes 4 bit and 8 bit mode. We all might have been familiar with 8 bit mode which is used widely in several systems. But 4 bit mode is something which many of us is not aware of. This mode has some advantages over the 8 bit mode out of which reduction of dedicated data pins is most important. This tutorial will teach you 4 bit LCD interfacing in 4 bit with your controller as well ...
