Two LCDs in Parallel?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Jonathan Dean May 24, 2013. 3 Replies

If I hook two LCDs to an Arduino to one set of pins (so each Arduino digital pin has two wires going to two LCDs), would they work? I want to LCDs to display the same thing, but I also need six…Continue

"It's been a while, but I seem to recall that I did have some success sending it commands. I never tried changing the baud rate because 9600 was fine. I do remember that it accepted strings, not binary values, so I don't know what the data…"

"Just remember that millis() will overflow after about 50 days, so there's the potential for getting a reading where the starting value is much larger than the ending value, which will give you a huge but negative difference. Granted, it will…"

Jonathan Dean replied to Jonathan Dean's discussion Two LCDs in Parallel?
"Well, I finally got my 16x2 LCDs and a fresh new Nano 3.0. Both LCDs are wired up in parallel (same pot used for contrast, one resistor used for the backlight, although I'm going to change both to PWM in the actual project) and everything works…"

Jonathan Dean replied to Jonathan Dean's discussion Two LCDs in Parallel?
"Good idea on separate contrast and backlight controls. I was a little concerned that the timing would get hosed and one or both displays would have garbage on them, but now that I think about it, I don't think the Arduino "listens" to…"

PMH replied to Jonathan Dean's discussion Two LCDs in Parallel?
"Never tried it, but the Arduino should have plenty of drive to control two displays assuming you are talking low cost 2x16 displays. Use separate controls for contrast and backlight."

Two LCDs in Parallel?

If I hook two LCDs to an Arduino to one set of pins (so each Arduino digital pin has two wires going to two LCDs), would they work? I want to LCDs to display the same thing, but I also need six digital inputs for buttons; being able to control two LCDs from one set of pins would make it easier for me (rather than setting up a resistor network for the buttons or a parallel to serial converter).Any ideas or suggestions?See More

"Given that you were able to hook it all up and go so far as to make a functional UI with an LCD and a few buttons, I'd say you've gotten the hang of it!  Do you have a lot of programming experience?"

GPS with GP-635

Posted on December 21, 2012 at 4:19am 2 Comments

So many GPS receivers nowadays keep the consumer far removed from the data that they use.  I wanted to get a GPS receiver module but most of them were more than I was willing to spend for a part that I didn't actually have a project for.  SparkFun started…
