How LCD can be interface with Arduino Uno?


How LCD can be interface with Arduino Uno?

In a 16×2 character LCD display, there are 16 pins. First two pins VSS and VDD are for providing power to the display. Connect these pins to the GND and 5V supply pins in the Arduino Uno. 3rd pin of the LCD is named as Vo which is used for adjusting display contrast.

How LCD is connected to Arduino?

Connect Pin 4 of the LCD to pin 12 on your Arduino. This will be the register select pin we output to from the Arduino later. Connect Pin 5 of the LCD to ground. Connect Pin 6 of the LCD to pin 10 on your Arduino.

What is the function of LCD?

A liquid-crystal display (LCD) is a flat-panel display or other electronically modulated optical device that uses the light-modulating properties of liquid crystals combined with polarizers. Liquid crystals do not emit light directly, instead using a backlight or reflector to produce images in color or monochrome.

How do you test 16×2 LCD?


  1. Are you worried whether your 16×2 Lcd is working or not?
  2. >> Connect the pin vcc pin to 5v.
  3. >>Connect pin Vee and gnd pin to ground.
  4. >> Connect Led+ to 5v.
  5. >>Connect led- pin to ground.
  6. If your Lcd is not working well, then both the lines will be bright shown below.

What are the two types of LCD?

Different Types of LCD Panels

  • Twisted Nematic (TN) Twisted Nematic LCDs are the most commonly manufactured and used types of monitors across a wide range of industries.
  • IPS Panel Technology.
  • VA Panel.
  • Advanced Fringe Field Switching.

What are the advantage of LCD?

Here are the top five advantages offered by LCD technology.

  • #1) Energy Efficient. LCDs are known for their energy-efficient properties.
  • #2) Long-Lasting. Another advantage of LCDs is their ability to last for a very long time.
  • #3) LED Backlighting.
  • #4) No Screen Burn-In.
  • #5) Supports Small and Low-Profile Sizes.

How to interface LCD display with Arduino Uno?

Hello friend welcome to “Techno-E-Solution” Today, we are going to interface 16×2 LCD with Arduino UNO. To interface LCD to the Arduino we need Liquid crystal library. The LCD module is use liquid crystal to print visible text on display, Mainly this display are used for DIY project.

How to setup a 16×2 LCD in Arduino?

Set the number of columns and rows by the function “lcd.begin (16, 2)”. If you have a display with 16 columns and 4 rows this become “lcd.begin (16, 4)”. And set the A0 pin as input. The setup part is over. Next loop part First I am going to clear the display. For that I use the function “lcd.clear ()”. This function will clean the entire display.

What are the pins on an Arduino LCD?

The A (anode) and K (cathode) are backlight LED pins which gives light to our LCD, it is connected to +5V through 330 ohm resistor.

Where are the port numbers on an Arduino?

the numbers are the port numbers that are connected to the pins on the LCD from left to right (LCD is right-side-up). Begin the LCD by using the code bellow: lcd.begin(16,2); //16,2 for 16×2 LCD screen In my case I am using a 16×2 LCD.
