This is a downstream E-blocks peripheral module, designed to be controlled by one of the upstream E-blocks processing boards which are available in a variety of MCU/CPLD architectures.
2-line, 16-character display for E-blocks systems
This 2-line, 16-character alphanumeric LCD with contrast control uses 6 lines of an E-blocks port to allow the display of numbers and characters. The LCD is fully supported within the Flowcode flowchart programming software, which makes adding an LCD character display to your application as easy as placing a single flowchart symbol and typing in the text message you want to display.
The LCD Module uses a Samsung KS0066U controller, which is similar to the Hitachi HD44780 controller.
E-Blocks LCD Board Resources
E-Blocks Overview E-Blocks are small circuit boards each of which contains a block of electronics that you would typically find in an electronic system. Each E-Block performs a separate function as either an input sub-system, an output sub-system, an input/output sub-system or a processing sub-system.
E-Blocks can be put together to form a variety of systems that can be used for teaching and learning electronics, and for the rapid prototyping of complex electronic systems.
Each E-Block has one or more 9-way D-type connectors that provide up to eight input/output lines and a ground line. These D-type connectors allow connection between E-Blocks to be made in buses of multiples of 8 lines, just like a real electronic system. Power is routed separately to those E-Blocks that need it.
Processing E-Blocks based on PIC, dsPIC, ARM or AVR microcontrollers, Altera FPGAs, Arduino or Raspberry Pi control the whole E-Blocks system. Processing E-Blocks provide up to five input/output ports with up to eight lines per port.
Please see the E-Blocks Category for a list of available components. For more details on E-Blocks, see the E-Blocks User Guide (in English, French, German and Spanish) or watch the Introduction to E-Blocks video.
