LCD: 2 lines x 16 characters. Blue
If you need to add text to your MicroMite project then this LCD is the perfect choice. Comprising of 2 lines with 16 characters per line, it has white characters on a blue background. This LCD needs just six connections to a MicroMite along with a 5V supply.
A single MMBasic command fully configures the LCD. To display text or data anywhere on the display you use another single MMBasic command making the addition of text to your project a very simple task.
Supplied with a single row 16-way male header and a 10K variable resistor to adjust contrast.
This display requires a 5V supply capable of supplying 20mA.
The LED backlight has a series resistor mounted onboard so the backlight (Pin 15 & Pin 16) can be connected directly to a 5V supply.
Pin 1 = 0V (Connect to one end of 10K variable resistor)
Pin 2 = 5V (Connect to other end of 10K variable resistor)
Pin 3 = Contrast (Connect to 10K variable resistor: wiper)
Pin 4 = LCD RS
Pin 5 = 0V
Pin 6 = LCD EN
Pin 7 = 0V
Pin 8 = 0V
Pin 9 = 0V
Pin 10 = 0V
Pin 11 = LCD D4
Pin 12 = LCD D5
Pin 13 = LCD D6
Pin 14 = LCD D7
Pin 15 = LED Backlight + (Connect to 5V)
Pin 16 = LED Backlight – (Connect to 0V)
Initialise LCD with command: LCD INIT D4, D5, D6, D7, RS, EN (replace with corresponding MicroMite pin numbers. See User Manual for full details)
To write data/text to the display: LCD Line, Position, data$ (e.g. LCD 2, 1, “Hello World” will display ‘Hello World’ at the start of the second line)
Module Size: 80mm x 36mm x 12mm (excluding header pins)
Display Area: 64mm x 16mm
