Arduino LCD playground | LCD 4-bit library library built into the IDE will also work using 6 Arduino Pins in 4 bit mode. Display 16×2 (KS controller, black & white, no back-light, HD code compatible). I suggest you start with the original arduino LCD tutorial, using all 8-bits in the data-bus. (For another sample code for KS/S6A, go to .. If 4-bit mode * – whether When in 4-bit interface define if the data is in the upper. In 4-bit bus mode open these pins. MPU. DB DB7. I/O. Data bus When 8-bit bus mode, used as high order bidirectional data bus. In case of

For a basic explanation of how libraries work in Arduino read the library page.
For that you need to include the lcd. The below configuration is as per the above schematic. Essentials Only Full Version. Using 4-bit LCD alongside interrupts Josh has some notes on using the library alongside interrupts Source repository I’ve created a googlecode project to maintain the source, at https: Specifically, note that you should delete the library’s. I’ve successfully gotten the Stamp to communicate with a similar 4×40 LCD that uses the more common Hitachi HD controller, but the same code does not apply.
As it turns out, the initializing sequence difference between the Samsumg KS and the Hitachi HD was not the issue. Download the complete project folder from the below link: Hi Marine, Thanks for the code.
Determining the correct pinouts was another challenge as they were not stated as correct on the company’s website. It powers up fine, I get the two dark lines on lines 1 and 3 and I have the contrast POT working fine.
Try looking at the linker file and see if there is anything defined as PORTDbits, if not, see how they defined it. Could I by any chance see the header file you used and possibly an example program using these functions?
Sample code for Samsung KS/S6A LCD driver | Microchip
Quick Links Categories Recent Discussions. I’ve created a googlecode project to maintain the source, at https: Apart from alpha numeric chars it also provides the provision 4big display the custom characters by creating the pattern.
The constructor now requires to know if your display is 1 or 2 lines. The playground is a publicly-editable wiki about Arduino. But I am still failing to get anything but garbage to print on the display. This library should work with all HD -compatible devices. Sources for Electronic Parts.
An old 4-bit LCD library (now redundant)
See this forum post for more troubleshooting. In the above tutorial we just discussed how to interface 2x16Lcd in 4-bit mode. I’m thinking I wouldn’t be able to execute cursor movement commands if my data lines were incorrect. I seem to be getting real close to getting it to work, but need that extra piece of information that I’m not seeming to come up with as yet.
It is still ok to send the data before these signals. Forums Posts Latest Posts. A speed tuned version with assembler: Sign In or Register to comment. It’s basically the sample code provided by microchip, modified to run with the Samsung which is Sk0066 compatible driver instead of the Hitachi HD My Research found a datasheet for the KS and it is in there that I learned that the initialization sequence is a bit different.
Sample code for Samsung KS0066/S6A0069 LCD driver
As shown in the timing diagram the data is written after sending the RS and RW signals. First line move working, but both lines are greatly dimmed when displayed at the same time I think it’s a problem in my circuit, not in the library Hantronix HDML-B display16 characters X 2 lines.
I also added a couple of functions to stimulate ideas, but you might want to delete them from your copy of the library to save program space. What I DO get is the screen to clear and a cursor in the upper left corner. If the packages were smaller, I’d contemplate sitting two 4×20 side by side, but the circuit boards and bezels on the LCD keep the actual displays from lining up close to one another.
To change this behavior to be able to use any Arduino pins, change these lines:.
C” Line 7,8: Here each character is displayed in a matrix of 5×7 pixels. I figured this situation out with continued diligence. The HD datasheet pdf I looked at specifies a 1. Refer this link for more info on LCD libraries.
