Does anyone know of a rather large (like roughly 3x8", doesn"t have to be exact) character display that can be easily driven by Arduino like all the other ones out there? I"m thinking this would be a 16x1 display, just much larger than the small hobby ones on places like Adafruit. The screen just has to display a single line and the text has to be large enough to be seen from a reasonable distance, say, 30ft or so.

In this tutorial, we will display the custom characters on an LCD 16×2. Liquid crystal display (LCDs) offer a convenient and inexpensive way to provide a user interface for a project.

By far the most popular LCD used is the text panel based on the Hitachi HD44780 chip. This displays two or four lines of text, with 16 or 20 characters per line (32 and 40 character versions are also available, but usually at much higher prices).

We want to define and display custom characters or symbols (glyphs) that we have created. The symbols we want to display are not predefined in the LCD character memory.

A library for driving text LCD displays is provided with Arduino, and you can print text on your LCD easily as on the serial monitor because of LCD and serial share the same underlying print function.

To display custom characters on LCD, we must first know about the LCD dot matrix means pixels in LCD. There are 5 pixels in rows and 8 pixels in columns means every character is a combination of 5*8 dots.

Each big number is built from six of these glyphs, three forming the upper half of the big digit and three forming the lower half. BiDigitsTop and bigDigitsBot are arrays defining which custom glyph is used for the top and bottom rows on the LCD screen.

On previous tutorials on our website, we have covered the use of several displays, LCDs, and TFTs, with diverse Arduino boards. From Nokia 5110 LCD display to different types of OLEDs, the reason for the tutorials has been to ensure that, as a reader, you know how to use many of the most popular displays so this help you make the best choice when trying to select the perfect display for your project. For today’s tutorial, we will continue in that line and examine how to use the 20×4 I2C Character LCD Display with Arduino.

The 20×4 LCD display is essentially a bigger (increased number of rows and columns) version of the 16×2 LCD display with which we have built several projects. The display has room to display 20 columns of characters on 4 rows which makes it perfect for displaying a large amount of text without scrolling. Each of the columns has a resolution of 5×8 pixels which ensures its visibility from a substantial distance. Asides its size, the interesting thing about this version of the display being used for today’s tutorial is the fact that it communicates via I2C, which means we will only require 2 wires asides GND and VCC to connect the display to the Arduino. This is possible via the Parallel to I2C module coupled to the display as shown in picture below. The I2C module can also be bought individually, and coupled to the 16 pins version of the display.

To demonstrate how to use this display, we will build a real-time clock which will display date and time on the LCD. To generate and keep track of date and time, we will use the DS3231 Real time clock. We covered the use of the DS3231 RTC module in the tutorial on DS3231 based Real-time Clock, you can check it out to learn more about its use with the Arduino.

The exact component used for this tutorial can be bought via the links attached and the power bank is only required to run the Arduino when not connected to the computer. You can replace this with a 9V battery and a center-positive power jack.

Since the display and the real-time clock are both I2C devices, they will be connected to the same pins on the Arduino. For the Arduino Uno, the I2C pins are located on Pin A5 (SCL) and A4 (SDA). This may differ on any of the other Arduino boards. Connect the components as shown in the schematics below;

To write the code for this project, we will use three main libraries; the DS1307 Library to easily interface with the DS3231 module, the liquid crystal I2C library to easily interface with the LCD display, and the Wire library for I2C communication. While the Wire library comes built into the Arduino IDE, the other two libraries can be downloaded and installed via the links attached to them.

As mentioned during the introduction, our task for today is to obtain time and date information from the RTC module and display on the LCD. As usual, I will do a breakdown of the code and try to explain some of the concepts within it that may be difficult to understand.

We start the code by including the libraries that will be used. After which we create an object of the Liquid crystal library, with the I2C address of the LCD as an argument. The I2C address can be obtained from the seller or as described in our tutorial on using the 16×2 LCD display to ESP32.

Next, we create a set of variables which comprises of byte arrays that represent custom characters to be created and displayed.  The custom characters are usually 5pixels in width and 8 pixels in height, representing each box in the rows or columns of the LCD. The byte array represents which pixels of the box to be turned on or off.

Next, we write the void setup function and start by initializing the library using the lcd.begin() function, with the first argument representing the number of columns, and the second argument representing the number of rows. After this, the CreateCustomCharacters() function is called to convert the char variables created above into characters that can be displayed on the LCD. One of the characters created is then used to create a UI/frame which is displayed using the printFrame() function.

The first function is the printTime() which breaks down the time data stored in the “tm” variable to extract seconds, minutes and hour values. These values are then displayed on the LCD using the lcd.print() function.

The printDate function is similar to the printTime function. It extracts date information from the variable tm and uses the lcd.print() function to display it.

The printFrame() function, on the other hand, was used to create a sort of user interface for the project. it makes use of the characters created above. Each of the custom characters created is displayed using the lcd.write(byte(x)) function with x being the character number of the character to be displayed. The characters are positioned on the LCD using the lcd.setCursor() function which takes numbers representing the column and row on which the character is to be displayed, as arguments.

As usual, go over the schematics to be sure everything is connected as it should be, then connect the Arduino board to your PC and upload the code to it. Ensure all the libraries have been installed to avoid errors.

Different projects, come with different screen requirements. If you need to display a large amount of information and the size is not a constraint, the 20×4 I2C display is definitely one of the options you should consider.

You can find the previous article here. It contains a description of the LCD module, shows you how to connect the display to your Arduino UNO board and describes the basic rules of operating it using the software. Still, it needs to be admitted here that there is only a limited number of applications for an LCD alone, because in the case of such a simple LCD module no settings can be entered. To do so, you need a keyboard, which we will discuss in detail in one of the future articles, but now let us use a ready-made solution from the Arduino ecosystem – a board from Olimex – SHIELDLCD16x2.

This is a shield board which extends Arduino capabilities, equipped with an LCD module (2 lines of 16 characters each), 4 buttons and 8 additional GPIO lines. On the board, there is a PIC processor which communicates with Arduino UNO via the TWI interface. With access to a library of functions, operating this module with a built-in microcontroller should not cause any major problems. Let"s start with preparing the module for operation.

There are two steps to prepare the module for work: hardware and software. The first one is simply to plug the shield into the Arduino UNO board. The second one requires you to install a library of module operating functions.

To install the library, go to the module manufacturer"s website i.e. Olimex. Then, in the search box (next to the Search button) enter the part of the module name "LCD16x2". (Figure 1). Click on the Search button. When this text was being created, the search retuned two results – please, select "SHIELD-LCD16x2".

Under the description of the module, you can find the "SOFTWARE" section (figure 2). Each line of text in this section is also a link to a file that can be downloaded from the Olimex website. At this point, we are looking for the link saying: "OLIMEXINO-328 + SHIELD-LCD16x2 – a library and set of demo examples".

Download the ZIP file available at this link to your computer. Of course, it is worth having a look at the available examples, but for our needs it is enough to install the library saved in the LCD16x2 catalogue.

The Arduino IDE allows for various different ways of installing libraries. In this case, the easiest way is to upload the sources to the project directory, which also contains a libraries subdirectory. The project directory is created during the installation of Arduino IDE, and Windows usually places it (in the Polish language version) in subdirectory Ten Komputer → Dokumenty → Arduino. To add the library sources to today"s example, just move the LCD16x2 directory to the libraries folder. Once you"ve done that, launch the Arduino IDE.

Before getting started with your own program, you should read examples of using the LCD16x2.h library of functions available in the Examples directory. It is a much more effective method of learning than reading documentation, although it is worth remembering about the latter as well.

As mentioned before, the shield communicates with the UNO board using a serial interface. It"s easy to guess that the functions described in the previous article must be modified, because they used a parallel, 4-bit interface. As you can imagine, the microcontroller on the shield board communicates with the LCD character display module in the same way, but our Arduino UNO cannot "see" the display, and the control is done indirectly. Therefore, start the program by adding libraries to support the appropriate serial interface and the display module mounted on the shield board.

To make it simple, in order not to use the long library name, it is recommended to assign to it the lcd alias. We will use it by writing the name of the library function after the dot.

As you remember from the previous article, programs created for Arduino are divided into two parts: the initialization function and the infinite loop. The commands of the first one are written in the void setup() function, and of the latter – in the void loop() function. The commands contained within the setup function are executed only once, while those within the infinite loop are executed throughout the program.

The initialization function starts the TWI interface, clears the LCD screen, and turns on the display backlight at the maximum LED light intensity (0 parameter turns off the backlight).

If a bit is set, it is better to test its level using the Boolean product method. It is only true if both components are true. Further bit positions can be tested by using constants: 0x01 for a bit in position 0, 0x02 – in position 1, 0x04 – in position 2, 0x08 – in position 3, etc. It"s all the same whether you test the bits using hexadecimal, binary or decimal numbers, but once you get the hang of it, hexadecimal numbers are easy to write. You can see that the subsequent hexadecimal numbers used to test the bit position are the powers of 2.

Mask 0x01 corresponds to the first button on the left, while 0x08 corresponds to the first button on the right. The program numbers the buttons by giving the pressed variable a value corresponding to the conventional button number. Then, this number is shown on the LCD screen, at the position starting in the first row and the first column. The message is displayed only if the pressed value is different from 0. Otherwise, the message "No button" is displayed, indicating that no button is pressed. The message is terminated with three spaces so that when overlaid on "1 is pressed" (which is longer) the last characters of the caption are cleared.

The whole sketch is available in the resources attached to the article. Compile it and upload it to the Arduino UNO microcontroller memory using the Ctrl+U shortcut (Sketch → Upload).

In this guide we’re going to show you how you can use the 1.8 TFT display with the Arduino. You’ll learn how to wire the display, write text, draw shapes and display images on the screen.

The 1.8 TFT is a colorful display with 128 x 160 color pixels. The display can load images from an SD card – it has an SD card slot at the back. The following figure shows the screen front and back view.

This module uses SPI communication – see the wiring below . To control the display we’ll use the TFT library, which is already included with Arduino IDE 1.0.5 and later.

The TFT display communicates with the Arduino via SPI communication, so you need to include the SPI library on your code. We also use the TFT library to write and draw on the display.

In which “Hello, World!” is the text you want to display and the (x, y) coordinate is the location where you want to start display text on the screen.

The 1.8 TFT display can load images from the SD card. To read from the SD card you use the SD library, already included in the Arduino IDE software. Follow the next steps to display an image on the display:

Note: some people find issues with this display when trying to read from the SD card. We don’t know why that happens. In fact, we tested a couple of times and it worked well, and then, when we were about to record to show you the final result, the display didn’t recognized the SD card anymore – we’re not sure if it’s a problem with the SD card holder that doesn’t establish a proper connection with the SD card. However, we are sure these instructions work, because we’ve tested them.

In this guide we’ve shown you how to use the 1.8 TFT display with the Arduino: display text, draw shapes and display images. You can easily add a nice visual interface to your projects using this display.

In many of the projects, we print the messages on the Serial monitor. But, the monitor may not become be a part of compact devices that need to display the messages. For instance, take an example of a small weather station that is used in industrial and other automation to display the weather conditions. This portable device must need anything that receives the message and display that, Here comes the LCD.

Also, when we print the messages on the serial monitor, it contains both numbers and characters both. However, if you specifically require printing the character, use the character LCD which we are going to discuss in this tutorial. So, in this tutorial, we are going to interface ” 16×2 Character LCD Module with Arduino UNO”.

This character LCD comprises 16 columns and two rows. Hence it can print 32 characters, 16 characters in each row. A character is made up of 5* 8-pixel dots. This means, every character is made from 40 pixels and 32 characters may have 1280 pixels. On the backside of the LCD, the board contains the integrated circuit HD44780 that is used to get the command and data and process those commands to display the message on the LCD screen.

This LCD module is mostly used in embedded electronic projects. The module is more promising because of its cheap prices and easy availability in the market. The module has sixteen pins that contain the ground, Vcc, Vo, RS, R/W, Enable, data pins, etc. There is no doubt about the functionality and cheap prices f this module. However, the module needs many pins to an interface which makes it a little difficult to handle.

Connect 16×2 Character LCD Module with Arduino UNO according to the given diagram. Then write the code given in this article. Now, upload the code. See the message that would appear on the LCD screen.

Include the liquid crystal library. create the liquid crystal object called LCD. The object has six parameters that show the Arduino pins which are connected with RS, Enable, data pins (d4, d5, d6, d7) of the module.

In the void setup, initialize the LCD by LCD. begin( ). Hence in the bracket define the parameters, that is column and row respectively. use LCD. clear to clear the LCD.

In the void loop, print the message Hello world1 by using LCD. print. Use setCursor( ) and specifies the position for the next message by defining rows and columns. After that, print the next message.
