DLP Design DLP-MAV-LCD1 LCD / Microcontroller Module
DLP Design DLP-MAV-LCD1 LCD / Microcontroller Module combines a 2x16-character backlit LCD display with a TI MSP430 microcontroller to form a MAVRK-supported display module. The MSP430 is preprogrammed with basic functionality for driving the LCD display via either the MAVRK platform or a simple, 5-pin TTL serial interface. DLP Design DLP-MAV-LCD1 LCD / Microcontroller Module provides the MAVRK platform with a means of displaying data that does not require a connected host PC. The host firmware sends data from the host processor on the MAVRK platform via the 2-wire TTL serial interface. When the 5-switch joystick is operated, the DLP-MAV-LCD1 issues switch closure information to the host processor using the MAVRK platform protocol. The DLP-MAV-LCD1 is ready to accept commands immediately upon power up.
