2x16 Arduino compatible LCD Shield with FEZ Cerbuino Bee


#1

I have a FEZ Cerbuino Bee and a 2x16 Arduino Shield that I’m trying out, but all of the example code I’m finding is for an old version of the GHI SDK. Can someone point me to some examples that use the latest version or do I need to install version 4.1 of the SDK?

The shield is a HD44780-compatible display.

I’m a newb at .NET Micro Framework and Gagdeteer so any help is greatly appreciated.

No one has time to answer my question?

The examples should mostly work in 4.2. Perhaps you could try running the 4.1 sample and then post back with more specific problems that you encounter and we’ll help you from there?

As a starting point you may find the pin out code samples in the Developers’ Guide. Developers’ Guide are found in the product Catalog page for a product under the Resources tab: see https://www.ghielectronics.com/catalog/product/351 for FEZCerbuino Bee.

Also the developers’ Guide for our Display Module: http://www.ghielectronics.com/docs/171/character-display-module.

You are going to have to use your pins to emulate the open source Driver for our product. It is found on codeplex http://gadgeteer.codeplex.com/ under SOURCE CODE->Main->Modules->GHIElectronics->Display_HD44780 there are drivers there for both 4.1 and 4.2. I believe some of the timings have been adjusted in the upcoming SDK release.
