SERIAL LCD

DESCRIPTION

PRODECT  NAME: SERIAL LCD

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:

     This is the latest evolution of our serial LCD. Included on a single board is a 16x2 LCD and an embedded circuit based around a PIC 16F88 and others. The Serial LCD is a simple and cost effective solution for interfacing to Liquid Crystal Displays (LCDs) based on HD44780 controller. The module takes incoming 9600 bps TTL level signals and display those characters on the LCD screen. Only three wires +5V, GND and Signal are needed to interface to the LCD.

Features:

Ø  Operational Backspace

Ø  Simple 3 pin Interface to control LCD from 9600 baud

Ø  rate from any microcontroller

Ø  Contrast adjustment Preset

Ø  Backlight can be controlled from software

Ø  Full control of LCD from serial data

Ø  Auto-wrapping of displayed data

Ø  Incoming buffer stores up to 80 characters

Ø  Pulse width modulation of backlight allows direct control of backlight brightness and current consumption

Ø  All surface mount design allows a backpack that is half the size of the original

Ø  Faster boot-up time

Ø  Boot-up display can be turned on/off via firmware

Ø  User definable splash screen

Hardware Specifications:

    The serial LCD should only be powered by 5V DC. Higher than 5.5V will cause           damage to the LCD. The serial LCD uses 3mA with backlight turned off and ~60mA with the backlight activated.
