LCD I2C Driver for Newhaven displays


#1

Hello,

Here’s a simple driver for the NHD-0216K3Z-FL-GBW 2x16 Characters LCD display that can be bought for example here:http://www.jameco.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?langId=-1&productId=2118651

The driver uses I2C to communicate with the LCD.

You can find it here:

I hope you will find it useful.

These newhaven display work over SPI, I2C and UART! I have tested few and they worked great.

My favorite was this one http://www.newhavendisplay.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=253&products_id=2391

… absolutely huge and love the blue color.

I used OutputCompare so I can run the display on any IO and I only need one wire.

Does UART/RS232 mode on the Newhaven display actually work when I connect the display?
Because I thought I always needed a 3.3v display and this one is 5v?

The blue 4x20 is indeed very cool ;D

It worked fine when I tried it :slight_smile:
