Character LCD (mp) Multi-Port
Ever wish you could use one of the standard 2x16 character displays across multiple ports or not have to use sequential pins? Well now you can spread the connections to your character LCD across multiple ports in any order. This new component is 100% compatible with the original Character LCD, except you can connect it any way you want. One other little feature is that you only need 6 GPIOs instead of 7. So check out the CharLCDmp. You can also use it with the standard port 2 connector, but make sure you drive the R/W pin to Vss.
The attachment contains a workspace with a demo project and a library with both the CharLCDmp component and a LCD annotation component to help you remember how to connect the two together.
