Character LCD Solution for all Kinetis Parts

Discussion created by Mark Butcher on Nov 25, 2017

Hi All


There is occasionally the requirement to integrate a low cost and low power character LCD into products.


In the following video I have shown how it is possible to set up a solution for any Kinetis part (I use the KL82 as example) connected by GPIOs and using a PWM output to control the LCD's contract which can be simulated, taking about 10 minutes in all.


Full 8 bit or 4-bit nibble modes can be used and the complete user's guide is at

1 x 8 up to 4 x 20 (line/characters) are configurable.
