Seven Segment Multiplexing using PIC18F4550 Microcontroller

As explained earlier, a seven segment interfaced with PIC uses almost an entire port (minimum 7 pins) to display a value. But a real time application, like watch, calculator etc., usually requires at least 3-4 seven segments. In such a case it is not advisable to use a port of the controller for each seven segment. In these cases, multiplexing technique is used to work with more than one seve ...

Interfacing JHD404A (40×4) lcd with Microcontroller

This post covers how to interface JHD404A 40×4 lcd with microcontroller (89c51, Pic16f877, Arduino etc). JHD404A is a 40×4 Character lcd. 40×4 means it has 40 coulombs and 4 rows. On each row of lcd we can display 40 characters/numbers etc. Total characters which we can display on 40×4 lcd is equal to (40×4=160) 160. Like all other character lcd’s JHD404A also has a controller in it which controls its inter ...
