Just tell it through the RS connection which LCD pins are attached to which Wombat pins, and what string to display.
It's just that easy. The Wombat also has commands to load custom bitmap characters. While you're driving this LCD you can also control servos, measure analog inputs, or perform hysteresis control. You can get the datasheet for the controller here: hd Both the Pinout and the HD controller documentation are readily available. Pro: This LCD doesn't appear to flicker when you update it rapidly.
Pro: Up to 8 user programmable characters are available. Pro: Uses a standard 14 pin 7x2 connector, on standard.
I got the best contrast simply by attaching Vo to ground. Even then, you have to be about 30 degrees "below" the display to get a good contrast.
This LCD is highly sensitive to the viewer's position. Con: The connector is wired backwards of the actual pinout. The red marked wire is 14, not 1.
Con: Character set A0 is included on this display. It has lots of what look like East-Asian characters to me. I like set A02 better. I simply stuck jumper wires in the appropriate holes, and then covered the thing over with electical tape. I put the jumpers in my solderless breadboard. The connector looks like this: 3. I ended up just wiring Vo to ground. This inverter gave off an audible hum while working.
I also don't like having things in my project which can shock me I started with a 2k linear pot between Vss and Vdd, but ended up just tying this pin to ground. This pin determines whether the data you're about to write is a command or a data byte.
Commands do interesting stuff to the LCD, like set the cursor position, or set 8 or 4 bit interface. Data is what actually gets put on the screen, or in the custom character registers. Set this pin low to write to it. Wait at least a millisecond between each command and data, though, since you can't query the busy status without read capability. This line works to clock in data and commands. See the protocol section below. Unused in 4 bit mode 4.
To clock in a byte: 1. Set the E line low. Set the RS line high if you're sending data, or low if your sending a command. Set the E line high 4. Put the four most significant bits on DB4 to DB7 5. Set the E line high 7. Put the four least significant bits on DB4 to DB7.
If you're using a microcontroller to do this, I'd make sure there was at least a microsecond between all of the above steps, and at least a millisecond between clocked in bytes. The LCD controller will auto-increment its address. You can then send another character which will be put in the next character location.
To reset the address to the first character set the RS line low, then clock in 0x The first line goes from display addresses 0 to The second line starts at address 0x Therefore, to display all 48 characters, clock in command 0x80, then 24 data characters, then command 0xC0, then 24 more data characters. The other characters: 0x00 to 0x0F are reserved for user-definable bitmaps.
Characters 0x10 to 0x1F are blank. This display supports up to 8 user defined bitmaps. The custom characters are available as 0x00, through 0x07 data.
When sending bitmaps, send the top line first, followed by the second line, and so on. The upper 3 bits of each byte are unused. A '1' bit represents a black pixel. For example, the upper left segment of the heart would be made up of data 0x00, 0x03, 0x07, 0x0F,0x0F, 0x1F,0x1F,0x1F. Pixel data is stored in the character RAM area. Then set the RS pin high and clock in between 8 and 64 bytes of data, depending on how many custom characters you want to use 8 bytes for each character.
Issue the 0x80 command above to return to sending data into the standard string buffer. Copyright Wombat Interface Products, All Rights Reserved. You just clipped your first slide!

Hitachi HD44780 LCD controller
Using an extension driver, the device can display up to 80 characters. The Hitachi HD LCD controller is limited to monochrome text displays and is often used in copiers , fax machines , laser printers , industrial test equipment, networking equipment, such as routers and storage devices. Compatible LCD screens are manufactured in several standard configurations. Larger custom sizes are made with 32, 40 and 80 characters and with 1, 2, 4 or 8 lines. The most commonly manufactured larger configuration is 40x4 characters, which requires two individually addressable HD controllers with expansion chips as a single HD chip can only address up to 80 characters. Character LCDs use a 16 contact interface, commonly using pins or card edge connections on 0. Those without backlights may have only 14 pins, omitting the two pins powering the light.
