In this tutorial we will see how to interface different character LCD with Explore Starter 8051.


The added advantage of this Starter 8051 board is, it has on board LCD breakout for character LCD. It's great escape from making 10+ connections to LCD on breadboard. We can able to interface 16X1, 16X2 and 20X4 LCD on this existing set up. For basics on LCD refer the 8051 LCD tutorial.
