    16x2 LCD PIONEER KIT SHIELD

    user_1386626

      After purchasing three Pioneer kits (early summer) I needed a better way to quickly prototype projects. This included having an LCD display and a breadboard similar to lot of the Cypress Kits like the CY310-PSoC EVAL1.

         

      I produce 12 PCB for personal use. The PCB layout uses a separate voltage regulator, 16x2 LCD module using theHD44780 5V controller with lack light, and jumpers to select several ways to connect power.     The shields can be configured to use a breadboard or wire wrap terminals.

         

       

         

               

         

       

         

      I’ve had no problems with LCD issues as indicated in thread CY8CKIT-042 PSoC 'ES'. The shield works with the LUMEX LCM SO 1602DSR/A LCD module (used in Cypress kits) with no back light. However, I have not tried it with a 3.3V module using the SPLC780D controller. That particular controller uses an extra 8 pin IC soldered on the back of the LCD board.  Data sheets indicate that the SPLC780D controller is compatible with the HD44780. However, the power up timing/initialization may be different.

         

      See attached file of shield with breadboard.
