You can display more characters by scrolling the texts one by one. We have already seen how to connect LCD Display directly with the Arduino using 4bit and 8bit modes in our previous tutorial. But those two modes will utilize many numbers of GPIO Pins of our Arduino and we would have to end up with less number of pins for other sensors and actuators. You can use multiple slave devices in the same two wires with one or more master controllers. You may wonder how does the master identifies which slave does the data to be sent.

I have not been able to find anything more than an 18 page datasheet for the Samsung chip. The Hitachi datasheet for the HDU does, however, contain a statement very similar to the one that you quoted for the KSB: When the busy flag is 1, the HDU is in the internal operation mode, and the next instruction will not be accepted. The next instruction must be written after ensuring that the busy flag is 0.

It just states how the busy flag relates to processor activity. If an instruction is sent without checking the busy flag, the time between the first instruction and next instruction will take much longer than the instruction time itself. Refer to Table 6 for the list of each instruction execution time. The second sentence needs some interpretation. This time delay must be "much longer" than the instruction execution time given in the table. The note does not emphasize the fact that Table 6 gives typical, not worst case, execution times but notice that it does say that the delay should be "much longer" than that value.

Unfortunately the LiquidCrystal library and most other programs that I have examined do not do this. They work the majority of the time, but then again the majority of chips probably operate close to their nominal specifications. Quote As for missing part of "Hello, world" that also could be an artifact of the display not being ready after reset. This was my initial thought as well but it is not correct since the controller is obviously being initialized mostly correctly.

They might have back light always on or does not have a back light. A means anode and K cathode, use these pins to control the back light of lcd. We actually talk with this controller in order to display character on the lcd screen. These registers are selected by the pins of character lcd. It switches between Command and data register.
