New Tutorial! Hooking up an LCD to an Arduino

For a soon-to-be-released project I needed to have a character LCD display. I’ve got a box with a few of those $10 parallel LCDs that are so popular.

There’s even a few libraries at the Arduino playground for easy use. Dave Fowler from uCHobby even started out with a great tutorial. However, I didn’t see any good tutorials on how to do the actual -connecting- part. So I took pix while I wired up one to a protoshield and tested it.

Read all about it at my LCD tutorial page!

(Or if you just want an LCD that’s ready to plug in, you can check out this cool blue LCD shield from nuelectronics.com)
