New Community Component - Character LCD Multi-Port

A new Character LCD Component has been posted to the Community Components page.  This Component will allow you to use a standard 2x16 character display without having to use sequential pins.  You can read more about the Component in Mark Hastings's Another year and another new PSoC component post on the PSoC Insiders Blog.

 

Design the way you think with PSoC Creator!

Has anyone tried this sample project. I can't seem to get it to work. I have tested the display with the reg. CharLCD component and that one works. I'm using the PSOC 3 First touch Starter kit board and Creator 2.2
.

Forgive me if I ask a stupid question, but did you make sure the R/W on the LCD is connected to Vss? I forgot to do that once and things did not work well. If that doesn't help, send me the pin connections you are using on the First touch starter board and I will try to reproduce the problem.

Hello Mark... Can you help me in tweaking and using this component for my PSoC 5 design?

Hi Mark, I did have the R/W connected to VSSand tried a lot of different pin configs. At one time I did see some very weak and flickery text. I could see the bar graph moving back and forth but there was a lot of garbage in there. I see that you posted a new version, I'll try it again. Sorry I took so long to respond, I'm a mentor for a robotics team and we are getting ready for our first competion of the season.

Thanks for all the help you provide in this forum. The new LCD component will help a lot of people add a display when they couldn't before.

If the display looks really dim, adjust your contrast, pin 3 on the LCD. Usually you connect this to a pot between Vss and Vdd. As far as the most recent update, it was so that it would work with the old PSoC5, it already worked with PSoC 5LP and PSoC 3.

Therepairshop, if you could email me directly with your project or just a subset with the LCD connections to meh@cypress.com, I'll take a look at it.

replica yeezy boost 350 Thanks for your submission. I also think that laptop computers are becoming more and more popular these days, and now will often be the only sort of computer used in a household.
