The modules are standard 2×16 char with green LED backlight, and aparently come from at least three different manufacturers: You would need to interrupt the power supply with some circuitry connected to your reset switch. Since reading back the data asserted by the LCD controller needs to be performed while E is active, this function reads and returns the input data if the parameter readback is true. Ron Kreymborg’s lcd16 library for AVR’s with avrgcc. Note that without a reset, you are starting in 4-bit mode, to send 8-bit commands you need to switch back to that mode.

In this part we will connect the LCD module to an Atmega8 microcontrollerthen write some code qvr drive it. How to add a raw binary image to linker output? I don’t even know if the brand of computer monitors called KFC still exists. I recently bought some other displays with the type number JHTA No manufacturer name, although there is a small logo which looks like a Y inside a circle.
Although the pin connector suggests separate connections for the backlight, the displays I have are wired to supply the backlight from the main power-pins.

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. If your module has 14 or 16 pins, it shouldn’t be too hard to figure out the pinout.
I got a hold of these modules when I worked at Zitech Computerway back. One of the commands sent during the initialization-sequence will configure the display for either 4 or 8-bit mode.
hd44780 Character LCD Displays – Part 2
Although a few LEDs can provide a lot of information, a more advanced display is sometimes needed. I used a 5K pot, but a range of other values would work as well.
Great article, other than this problem though!! My experiments show that it is extremely difficult to read anything on the display with the backlight off, due to the dark blue filter in front of the display, so I don’t think you would want to run the display without the backlight. 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 am using floating point svr. Both are 2×16 chars with the Japanese character ROM.
avr – Hitachi HD LCD works exactly 50% of the time – Electrical Engineering Stack Exchange
We are following almost the same series of steps as the 4 bit example in Part 1. There are a lot of good libraries to be found on the Net, ranging from very basic to quite advanced with custom characters, bar-graphs etc. If you wish to have more than one LCD-module connected to one micro-controller, they can share all signals except this enable-line.
HDbased displays can be operated in either 8-bit or 4-bit modes. My ATmega keeps crashing! As with the Breadboard example we will solder a 16 pin header to the LCD module. Or if you have severe constraints on the flash memory, and need to write everything in highly optimized assembler etc.

Similarly, J4 connects the cathode to pin 16, and J5 to pin 1. If you need to connect the module to other pins apart from changing the entire portyou should probably consider using a different library. Why does my code not work? The really big displays have two HDcontrollers, and so ar two enable-lines, controlling different parts of avd display. The pin-configuration of these display are as follows: Your shopping bag is empty. So I asked him to put some aside, and I still have a bunch of them.
When viewed from the front of the display, pin 1 is in the top left corner. The circuit depends a little on the software used, since there are a couple of modes the LCDs can be operated.
