This is a popular 16x1 LCD with Green Backlight display. It is based on the S6A0069 or Equivalent display controller which makes it is easy to interface this lcd most microcontrollers.
Its extreme popularity ensures that no matter which micro controller platform you are using, you will definitely find ready libraries to use this LCD.
LCD modules are very commonly utilized in most embedded projects, the rationale being its cheap price, availability and programmer friendly.
Most folks would have encounter these displays in our day to day life, either at PCO’s or calculators.
The appearance and therefore the pinouts have already been visualized above now allow us to get a touch technical.
16×1 LCD is named so because; it has 16 Columns and 1 Rows.
There are a lot of combinations available like 8×1, 8×2, 10×2, etc. but the most used one is the 16×1 LCD. So, it will have (16×1=16) 16 characters in total and each character will be made of 5×8 Pixel Dots.
Now, we know that each character has (5×8=40) 40 Pixels and for 16 Characters we will have (16×40) 640 Pixels. Further, the LCD should even be instructed about the Position of the Pixels.
Hence it'll be a busy task to handle everything with the assistance of MCU, hence an Interface IC like HD44780is used, which is mounted on the backside of the LCD Module itself.
The function of this IC is to ue the Commands and Data from the MCU and process them to display meaningful information onto our LCD Screen.
You can find out how to interface an LCD using the above mentioned links.
If you're a complicated programmer and would really like to make your own library for interfacing your Microcontroller with this LCD module then you've got to know the HD44780 IC is functioning and commands which may be found its datasheet.
This is a popular 16x1 LCD with Green Backlight display. It is based on the S6A0069 or Equivalent display controller which makes it is easy to interface this LCD most microcontrollers.
Its extreme popularity ensures that regardless of which microcontroller platform you're using, you'll definitely find ready libraries to use this LCD.
This is a basic 16 character by 2 lines Alphanumeric display. Black text on Green background. Utilizes the extremely common HD44780 parallel interface chipset.
Interface code is freely available. You will need Minimum 6 general I/O pins to interface to this LCD screen. Includes LED backlight. Works in 4bit and 8 bit Mode.
This display 16x1 character model is built-in ST7066 or equivalent which default interface is 6800 4/8-bit parallel.
It’s also available in SPI and I2C interface by using RW1063 controller IC. The LCD panels are available in STN, FSTN, FFSTN types and also with polarizer positive mode and negative mode options.
