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 ...

LCD interface with Microcontroller PIC: Beginner’s guide using pic microcontoller

How to interface LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) display module to PIC microcontroller? LCD is a passive component, that is it does not make any light but just modifies the light passing through it for alphanumeric displays. LCD is exclusively manufactured to be used with microcontrollers, which means that it cannot be triggered by usual IC circuits. This embedded program shows how to connect PIC to LCD displa ...

Driving LCD directly from PIC

This project is one another thermometer application that uses the TCN75A digital sensor from Microchip. The sensor provides digital temp conversion in the range -40°C - 125°C (-40°F - 257°F) and has maximum resolution 0.0625°C. However, the LCD that I used (2.5 digits model LCD-S2X1C50TR manufactured by Lumex) only works reliably in the temperature range 0 - 50°C, so the code is adjusted for this range only ...

3-Wire Serial LCD using a Shift Register

Introduction HD44780 based character LCDs require at least 6 I/O lines from microcontroller to display data. Therefore, they are not suitable for low-pin microcontrollers like PIC12F series microchips. In this project, I am going to show how to drive an HD44780 based LCD display with only 3 pins of a microcontroller. I am going to demonstrate it with PIC12F683 microchip. The character data and command from ...
