(Week 13) Testing with 16×2 LCD screen and Raspberry Pi using Fritzing

Here, i want to testing between 16×2 LCD screen with Raspberry Pi. As you can see from my previous blog, the circuit have been construct based on this connection. If there had no problem with all the connection, I will proceed to combine it with female wire and jumper. I choose fritzing because I can create a test specification via GPIO port using Raspberry Pi. I think that trying to integrate equipment int ...

“Portable” Raspberry Pi

Merry Christmas world!!! This is a special Christmas 'ible that I'm making based off what I got for Christmas this year. :D I got a small monitor and small keyboard this year (AA battery for size comparison), and I decided to use it to make a portable(ish) raspberry pi. It's not portable in the sense that it's for on-the-go situations, but it's more portable in terms of not being wired down. The next editio ...

LCD Library (HD44780U)

The wiringPi LCD devLib allows you to drive most of the popular 1, 2 and 4-line LCD displays that are based on the  Hitachi HD44780U or compatible controllers. It allows you to connect multiple displays to a single Raspberry Pi. The displays can be connected directly to the Pi’s on-board GPIO or via the many GPIO expander chips supported by wiringPi – e.g. the MCP23017 I2C GPIO expander (e.g. as used on som ...

Running OpenGL-based Games & Emulators on Adafruit PiTFT Displays using Raspberry pi

The Ideal: Adafruit’s PiTFT displays are razor sharp. Whereas small composite screens on the Raspberry Pi usually require some video scaling (resulting in blurriness), PiTFT uses the GPIO header, digitally controlled pixel-by-pixel for a rock steady image. Though not a lot of pixels, it works great for retro gaming (and the display neatly stacks above the board, no side protuberances for video cables). The ...

SSD1306 OLED Displays with Raspberry Pi and BeagleBone Black

Are you looking for a bright graphical display to use with you Raspberry Pi or BeagleBone Black project? Consider using one of the SSD1306-based OLED displays, with the SSD1306 Python library! Although they're small (only an inch or so in size), these displays produce a beautiful and crisp 128x32 or 128x64 pixel image. Connecting the display to a Raspberry Pi or BeagleBone Black is easy too thanks to the di ...
