Note that some of the initialization commands take much longer time for the display to process than normal instructions and data. On a device with more than KiB of flash, how to make function pointers work? Normally I would only recommend this if you need some special feature or hardware setup, and if you can’t find some existing code you can modify to suit your needs. The displays have single-row pin connections, which should be on the top to have the characters appear correctly on the display. My UART is generating nonsense! One of the commands sent during the initialization-sequence will configure the display for either 4 or 8-bit mode.

How do I perform a software reset of the AVR? I’ve also tried to increment the delay time 5 seconds before the init.

For the 2×16 char displays I have worked with, the first line has character addresses 0xx8F while the second line has 0xCxCF. Lastly we attach the module to the female headers. I will now list the pin-configurations of a few var of diplay modules, which I have been using for various things.

General utilities Non-standard i. I complied without making any changes and get numerous warnings and error.

The code will not compile for part B. The power for the backlight is supplied from the Vcc and Gnd connections.

It only happens if I write on the 2nd line of the LCD. This is used to switch the data-direction between the module and the mikrocontroller. This can be configured by some solder-jumpers on the back of the module. Which AVR-specific assembler operators are available? I used a separate 5V power-supply for the LCD, since the backlight can be a little heavy on the power-consumption, and I do not know how much power the STK can supply.


To make things easier we need to abstract away the finer implementation details and focus on the operations the developer needs to perform. These modules are with white LED backlight and blue background. In 4-bit mode the two nibbles are sent one after another, both to DB7-DB4 on the display.

When viewed from the front of the display, pin 1 is in the top left corner. It uses a slightly modified version of Ron Kreymborg’s lcd16 described aboveand should work on most AVR controllers, when compiled with avrgcc e. As it can be seen from the character-set, no ROM characters are defined for characters 0xx1F and 0xx9F. Your email address will not be published.


When comparing to the pinout of other LCD modules, these models seem to have hd447780 the pin numbering, and also reversed the Vcc and Gnd connections. The corresponding hex-codes for the user-defined characters are as follows: It is very simple, and is only made for 2×16 character displays although different sizes could be used with minor changes to the code.


Is it a problem is a deboucing reset button issue on the AVR? The HDbased displays In many microcontroller applications some sort of display is needed to present information and status of the controller to the user.

I will not go into too much detail about how to control these LCD modules, since there are already a lot of pages on this subject. The diagram has a slight error on it. The easiest way to get this on windows is through the WinAVR -package, which bundles avrgcc avr-libc and a range of development tools, including an editor agr software for device programming. The test-setup I made is shown in the figure below.

Register Select PC 3: This tutorial will teach you how to use external and pin change interrupts on an Ron Var lcd16 library for AVR’s with avrgcc. Why is the compiled code so big? Here’s a video of what is happening. I used a 5K pot, but a range of other values would work as well.

They do not belong to the public interface, so they are declared static.
