Hello list...

I am interesting to use a PIC controller to display text on a small LCD
display, and therefore I was interesting if anyone have any good tips for
cheap and good LCD displays wich can be used with PIC devices....

best regards,
tobias

Hi

you could use the L1614B1J000 from Seiko.
It is a 4 line X 16 character display, and it uses
the hitatchi hd44780 LCD controller, which is very
easy to interface.
There are alot of schematics available on the net,
which tell you to interface parrallel / serial to a pic.
Serial is good if you are short of I/O pins.....

I'm using this display in a 3 wire interface, and it works
very well. I can send some schematic/ C-source to you
if you want.

Best regards
Henrik Nowak

There are many LCD devices around. For my input, I will assume you are a
hobbyist and want to either play around or use it for debugging.  If you are
not, then ignore the following:


1.  Scott Edwards has a sale on a complete serial LCD 2X16 setup for $29.00
(all kinds of warnings that this is NOT going to be a repeat - don't buy it
for production, etc). See it at http://www.seetron.com.  I believe it is
assembled - but I haven't got one in front of me.


2. BGMicro has some pulled 1X16 LCDs for less than $3.00. I have some of
these and they are a little hairy to work with - you have to modify the
cable that goes to them to get access to the ports - but very doable and
standard Hitachi interface after that. See my web page at
http://204.233.101.40/robots/robotsandstuff.html for a less than great
picture of one. There is CCS C source code on there for a simple (very
simple - meant for beginners) serial hookup of your own - unique to CCS
compilers.  You will put more than $29.00 worth of effort (a couple of
hours) and parts (around $8.00 including the display)  into converting the
LCD to a serial model - but it is still fun to do.

3.  BGMicro has a four line LCD kit that is a serial interface - a very good
kit. I think it  costs around $35 or so. It is called PIC An LCD.

4. Peter Anderson makes a $9.95 interface (no LCD module) that is pretty
good if you don't want to do the code. He also offers an assembled version
of the PIC An LCD that has been modified to be a bit more robust (will take
accidental power reversal and keep on ticking).  http://www.phanderson.com

4.  There are a number of messages in the archives over the last month that
point to LCD modules on the web. Many are at VERY good prices and well worth
getting if you need a continuing supply. Check out the archives at:
www.infosite.com/%7Ejkeyzer/piclist/index.html
and elsewhere.

http://www.mpja.com has some backlit 2x16 for $3.95
http://www.jameco.com P/N163176; Product Number MEG12864  $ 49.95 for a
graphics LCD

The June archive has more.
