1 Introduction

This example demonstrates how to write data to a two- or four-row HD44870 LCD device on multiple platforms.

2 LCD on Various Platforms

Because each platform could have unique pins or header layouts, we show LCD on multiple platforms in the following sections.

2.1 LCD on Arduino

The Arduino is a breeze to wire up. The pin assignments are printed on the Arduino circuit board and those are the numbers used to address them in the code.

This is the main program for LCD on the Arduino.
