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

It is also faster and less resource hungry, and has more features.

4bt Determining the correct pinouts was another challenge as they were not stated as correct on the company’s website. Read more on 20×4 modifications. The below image shows the timing diagram for sending the data to the LCD.

For that you need to include the lcd. Specifically, note that you should delete the library’s.

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. This LCD4bit library dates from when the official library only worked in 8 bit mode. I’ve successfully gotten the Stamp to communicate with a similar 4×40 LCD that uses the more common Hitachi HD kks0066, but the same code does not apply.


Refer this link for more info on LCD libraries. Essentials Only Full Version. 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 daya space.

LPC Lcd 4bit – Tutorials

Why dsta my PIC32 run slower than expected? Once you know the working of lcd, you can directly use the ExploreEmbedded libraries to play around with your LCD.

Retrieved from ” https: The problem seems to be that it is not successfully getting the command to switch to 4 bit mode, the method that I am using for the other LCD as well. As shown in the above figure and table, an alpha numeric lcd has a 8-bit data bus referenced as D0-D7.

Dta controller appears to still be looking for an 8 bit instruction instead of two 4 bit instructions. Once you are sure your display is working, you can move on to use the 4-bit version. The pin assignments for datx data pins are hard coded in the library.

Sample code for Samsung KS0066/S6A0069 LCD driver

I will hopefully be able to get it working. This frees another arduino pin for you. It supports all the ascii chars and is basically used for displaying the alpha numeric characters. 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: Scope of this tutorial is to show how to display the alpha numeric chars on LCD, Generating and displaying the custom chars will be discussed in subsequent tutorials.


One other thing I might dtaa, maybe you could use different port for the RS, RW, E, I know that you’d mask port D to make sure other than data bits nothing’s affected, but it’s good to be on the safe side. See this forum post for more troubleshooting.

Here’s what you must do after the setup described in the original tutorial: This pin is used to send the enable ls0066 to LCD. Quick Links Categories Recent Discussions.

Interfacing to LCDs with Samsung KS0066 controller

What I DO get is the screen to clear and a cursor in the upper left corner. Hi Marine, Thanks for the code. C” Line 7,8: What helped was knowing that I had partial success and that getting control commands to work meant I was either sending partial commands or RS was not getting to the LCD. Make sure you have read the How to use it section on this page.

As it turns out, the initializing sequence difference between the Samsumg KS and the Hitachi HD was not the issue.

The following path should exist afterward:
