A limited number of custom characters can be programmed into the device in the form of a bitmap using special commands. The connection is uni-directional, so no Readback. Using an extension driver, the device can display up to 80 characters.

EN1 and EN2D Non-LED backlights often require higher voltages. The driver exclusively controls the BL pin specified, the other extensioj port pins may be used for different purposes. Please refer to the datasheet of your display!

Hitachi HD44780 LCD controller

The original HD controllers can drive up to 80 characters – most displays with more characters use two independent controllers. Some displays require a negative voltage for the display.

The driver makes no assumptions about the pin mapping, arbitrary pins from different ports may be used to drive the LCD signals. Refer to Ulrich Radig’s avr-webserver for an example of this connection type. Retrieved from ” https: Larger custom sizes are made with 32, 40 and 80 characters and with hd44708, 2, 4 or 8 lines. The HD module supports this 4 Bit mode only. These characters have to be written to the device each time it is switched on, as they are stored in volatile memory.


Two versions of the ROM have been developed: Sanchez, Julio; Canton, Maria P. There are two primary considerations.

Note that you have to specify either port A or B as shown below, mapping using mixed pins of both ports is not supported by the driver. More recent compatible chips are available with higher estension, matched to displays with more pixels. The connection is uni-directional, so no Readback.

Most displays use 14, 16 or pin connectors with common pinouts but there are sometimes subtle differences.


State3 may occur, for example, if a prior control was aborted after sending only the first 4 bits of a command while the LCD was in 4-bit mode.

Character LCDs use a 16 contact interface, commonly using pins or card edge connections on 0. Another signal BL is needed if backlight control ist required. This connection type is Readback-capable.

Remember that you have hd4480 replace the inverting backlight control circuitry with a direct connection from the PCFx to the 16 pin header to connect displays with two enable signals to this board.
