Quark D2000 I2C Interfacing: Add a Light Sensor and an LCD

Get acquainted with using I2C with the Quark D2000 development board by interfacing an ambient light sensor and an LCD. Previously, we presented a general overview of the Quark D2000 development board. Subsequently, we explored the use of the board’s GPIO and PWM. In this project, we will explore using I2C with the D2000 board by interfacing an ambient light sensor and a COG (chip-on-glass) LCD. Since our l ...

LCD interfacing with arduino

In this tutorial we’ll be looking at how to connect interface parallel LCD to an Arduino. We are using 16 char x 2 Line LCD known as 16x2 LCD, you can usually identify this display by the 16-pin interface. You only need to solder 10 of the 16 wires to use the LCD, but this will only enable you to use the 4-bit interface. 4-Bit interface helps us to reduce required IO lines, there are various displays availa ...

Programmable 8-character LCD module and digital voltmeter

Signal and power from the same voltage source Most hobby electronics store carry cheap and ready to use digital voltmeter modules (DVM) the problem with those is that they do usually require an independent power source to power the DVM-module. Many circuits are made such that you have one power supply and you would like to power your circuit and the voltmeter module from this one single power supply. This i ...

Writing a python module to simulate a LCD

So recently I got a Raspberry pi and a 16x2 character LCD screen , I thought , lets make a simple game that can be played on the lcd. my first instinct was to code directly for the lcd on the pi , but as I started coding I realized that the clutter of having the lcd connected wasn't really necessary while i am programming the game's logic . I decided to make a python module that gives me the lcd output on m ...

A Simple Arduino LCD Min/Max Thermometer

As a simple first Arduino experiment I interfaced a two line LCD (a Displaytech 162B) and an LM35DZ to make a simple Min/Max thermometer. Step 1 - Interfacing the Temperature Sensor This is really very simple. The LM35DZ has three pins, +5V, ground and a variable voltage output to indicate the temperature. I plugged it into breadboard and wired the output straight to the Arduino's analogue input 0. To test ...

Interfacing TFT LCD with Arduino

Today, we are going to Interface 2.4 inch TFT LCD Shield with Arduino. By using this color TFT LCD shield we can show characters, strings, blocks, images etc on the color TFT LCD. And we can use this TFT Shield in many applications like:  Security System, Home Automation, Games etc. Interfacing TFT LCD with Arduino is very easy. We only need to have an Arduino Board & a 2.4 inch TFT Shield in hardware p ...

Arduino LCD Project for Measuring Distance with Ultrasonic Sensor

In LESSON 18 you learned how to use an ultrasonic sensor to measure distance, and in LESSON 19 you learned how to connect an LCD to the arduino. In this lesson we will combine what you have learned to create a circuit for measuring distance, and displaying results on an LCD display. - See more at: http://www.toptechboy.com/arduino/lesson-20-arduino-lcd-project-for-measuring-distance-with-ultrasonic-sensor/# ...

Interfacing 16×2 LCD with Arduino

To establish a good communication between human world and machine world, display units play an important role. And so they are an important part of embedded systems. Display units - big or small, work on the same basic principle. Besides complex display units like graphic displays and 3D dispays, one must know working with simple displays like 16x1 and 16x2 units. The 16x1 display unit will have 16 characte ...

Temperature Display Using LCD

Here is a Simple Temperature Display Circuit using LCD (Liquid Crystal Display). For Heat Sensor we have used IC LM35 (Precision Centigrade Temperature Sensors) whose Output voltage is linearly proportional to the Celsius (Centigrade) temperature. Output of LM35 IC is 10mv/degree centigrade for eg if temperature is 35 degree, then the output of sensor will be 350mv or 0.35V For working with LCD it is necess ...

LCD Shifter for Arduino

The original idea was to create a library that simplify the use of IC 74HC595 between Arduino and other hardware. In this Instructable I will share this to you using as example the control of a 16x2 LCD. The example will show on the LCD the seconds that has passed since Arduino was restarted. I hope it will be useful to you. Step 1: Place the Library under Arduino Folder I've named the library "ShiftOut". I ...

Arduino car LCD display

Here is a project I made a couple of years ago for my father’s car. The original dashboard’s info-panel which displayed current time, date and temperature was working only partly – and that only after a good cleaning and connector fastening. In other words – it wasn’t really usable, so I made an Arduino replacement. The new panel features: Big 8-character LCD display with auto-on adjustable white backlight ...
