I want to use the same idea for the I love it Notice that i found a working code but want to use the adafruit code instead for better maintenance and support. Learn more.

The advantages are: it's cheap and on the web is available a library written for our purposes.
Did you use this instructable in your classroom? Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson. The components suitables for our project are:. These address work if PCF's address pins are shorted to ground. If you need to use another address please refer to datasheet. Test it using a tester in short circuit mode same as diode test, the tester beeps when current can flow and the cover the back with dutch tape.
This means that the command lcd. I have a pcf AT with a hex address 0x But when i print on lcd it doesnt budge beyond first letter. Reply 2 years ago. The only thing that matters is the address. For PCFA should still be 0x38, but check the datasheet. Reply 4 years ago. Well, since I had another model I don't know, but what you're saying makes sense.
Anyway, these infos can be retrived on the datasheet. Yes i had no screen. But i had no visual text.

So i thought about the Driver right away. I got this image with all addresses. Thanks for the explanations, although I've done everything as you said, my lcd doesn't print anything, I managed to get a '0' in a corner after a while though.
Also, if I leave the 'lcd.

Anyway, since you managed to obtain a zero written on the display means that the address of the chip is correct. Hi, Thanks for your answer, I managed to solve the problem in the end, but I don't really know how. If your pinout is different because you bought a commecial module as adafruit's, try to contact the producer. Add Teacher Note. Addressing: using I2C communication protocol implies giving an address to your device. So let's do it! I've built it on a stripboard, but a perfoboard works fine too.Remember Me?

Library is working fine but I do have a small problem. Does anyone have different idea for this problem. I tried putting some delay on the beginning of the program not sure if this code is optimized. I don't know why I'm still doing this hobby.
How are you powering all this hardware? I am using USB power supply from laptop. I will test it with 9V power supply and will share results. You should add your own series resistor.
External devices like motors, servos, big LED strings take a lot of current. It is wise to provide separate external power for them. Your AVR can monitor the state of these external devices. And control the startup currents.
Have you considered trying the initialization sequence recommended by Hitachi in Figure 23 of their data sheet? It is slightly different than the one you are using specified by Sitronix but may in fact be more reliable. If you do try it don't forget to turn the display back ON at the end. I tried to change initialization sequence but with no luck.
But I did notice this. When I plug the system on then some of the initialization sequence does go through, for example I get two line interface on the LCD but there is no cursor should be marked and blinking. When I push reset button then everything is ok text is shown and also other configuration of LCD is good. Pushing the reset button again, something happens and LCD configuration is good but text is wrong.
I checked, function which sends the data via I2C receives good data but apparently different data is being send. So my guess is that the I2C is the problem here, but I can't figure out what. I really want to get to bottom of this, and I will continue to search for answer so I would appreciate new ideas and different view on this matter. Just for a test. If that changes things, then shorten the delay and see where things start to go wrong with a "power-up start".Posted by Circuit Basics Raspberry Pi I2C inter-integrated circuit is also known as the two-wire interface since it only uses two wires to send and receive data.
Actually it takes four if you count the Vcc and ground wires, but the power could always come from another source. The ground and Vcc pins will also need to be connected. Most LCDs can operate with 3.
Before we get into the programming, we need to make sure the I2C module is enabled on the Pi and install a couple tools that will make it easier to use I2C. First, log in to your Pi and enter sudo raspi-config to access the configuration menu. Now reboot the Pi and log in again. This will show you a table of addresses for each I2C device connected to your Pi:.
There are a couple things you may need to change in the code above, depending on your set up. The function is used as mylcd. You can use the time. To end the program, press Ctrl-C. This code prints the IP address of your ethernet connection eth0. To print the IP of your WiFi connection, change eth0 to wlan0 in line This program will scroll a text string from the right side of the LCD to the left side and loop continuously:.
Each character is an array of 5 x 8 pixels. For Fahrenheit, un-comment lines 18 and 19, and change the C to an F in line You can also change the signal pin of the DHT11 input in line Let us know in the comments if you have any questions or trouble setting this up.

Also leave a comment if you have any other ideas on how to get some cool effects, or just to share your project! Thank you so much!! Thanks again :. Hi, I was wondering how to set the backlight off and then on? I tried different methods using the drivers, but none of them worked. Great article. I would also like to figure out how to switch the backlight on and off.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Awesome info. Will it hurt anything using the lcd without an i2c 3v to 5v converter? I have 16 white rectangles on first line and nothing on second line i have blue lcd with white digits. Good news is that LCD reacts with white rectangles when I run python code, if it is just connected to RPi there is only blue backlight. Do you know what might be wrong?Join us now!

But I am powering it with the PICkit3 here. The most common problem seems to be that the ACKEN bit is not getting cleared, which it should be by hardware.
I have another project using the same hardware, and function calls instead of macros, and it tests the EEPROM and operates the display reliably. I have made the macros from the functions and I'm using the same sequence of commands. I am trying to follow the execution of the project that DOES work. Klaatu Barada Nikto. Test if busy before setting any bits.
Here's a chain of events of what should happen. Hi, There is a lot of if's and but's to make reliable I2C code. Program should test state of the MSSP peripheral before and after each operation.
Master code should test that S bit is Clear before trying to send Start signal. Bus Collision should be tested for each operation, but is especially important after Start signal and after I2C address write.
This do not mean that it cannot happen.Add the following snippet to your HTML:. It is one of the many GPIO extenders available in the market. This tiny little board becomes a life saver When you run out of pins on your Arduino. These modules run on the I2C bus, and if daisy-chained you can connect upto 8 of these devices in a project. If you don't want to worry about the wiring and just want to keep your project really "simple", then you can buy these fully assembled breakout boards.
You just need to hook them up to the I2C bus and you are all ready to go. If you want to know more about the I2C technology please check out my 'Tutorial Number 09'. For now we will just cover the basics of I2C and we will jump to our main topic.
The two wires are:. Both of these lines are open-drain, and are pulled-up with resistors. Usually there is one master and one or multiple slaves on the line, however there can be multiple masters aswell.
Both masters and slaves can transmit or receive data. The Address range of PCF is from 0x20 to 0x27 7 bit address mode. When you are using multiple of these you can switch the address by adjusting these jumperAddress bars.
This is how an address byte of the PCF looks like. First 7-bits combine to form the slave address. The last bit of the slave address defines the operation read or write to be performed. When it is high 1a read is selected, while a low 0 selects a write operation. You may need to create the libraries sub-folder if this is your first library.
Restart the IDE and then you should be able to use the library in your code. This library also comes with very good examples which will help you in getting your hands on the IO Expander.
Lets start by connecting the IC to an Arduino. Connect:VCC to 3.
