|Hardware Required: |
No schematic necessary. All connections are made by installing the LCD Shield directly onto the Arduino's sockets.
Note: The boards tested use different signal and data pins than the default examples in the LCD Library. Our LCD Shield uses pin 8 for Register Select, Pin 9 for Enable, and pins 4, 5, 6, 7 for data
- connecting to Arduino pins 12, 11, 5, 4 , 3 and 2, respectively. You cannot change these pin connections, but must make sure your Sketch code specifies the actual pins being used:
// the syntax to specify the connections used by the LCD Shield should read:
LiquidCrystal lcd(8, 9, 4, 5, 6, 7);
