In this example the ORbit16™ is used in Serial emulation mode (CDC). ORbit16™ will appear as a COM port. Using Hyperterminal or a similar software, all we will write on the COM port will appear on the LCD. A Nokia 5110 / Nokia 3310 is used.
After ORbit16™ programming, you must disconnect the board, then attach the display as showed below, then reconnect: a new COM port will appear in your PC. You must open any terminal software (such as Hyperterminal) using any baudrate (with USB any value works fine), 8 data bits, no parity, 1 stop bit.
Go to the PCD8544 library page and read the usage document. Here you will see the display pinout. Follow the instructions in the document. In particular you must connect the display IOs as showed here (left: display IO, right: ORbit16™ IO):
- VCC to 3.3V
- GND to GND
- SCE to GND
- RST to RA0
- D/C to RA1
- DN (MOSI) to RB0
- SCLK to RB1
- LED : is the backlight, you can leave it disconnected or you can connect it to 3.3V through a 220Ω resistor
Please read the documents you’ll find in the PCD8544 library page.
Note: This example is made with the version 1.0 of the PCD8544 library. Please refer to PCD8544 library page for the latest version of the library.
