Arduino and the LCD Breakout Board

Post date: Jan 22, 2013 5:56:30 AM

This exercise connects a Color LCD Breakout Board from SparkFun Electronics to an Arduino UNO. Sketches in the exercise demonstrate the tri-color LED, switches, and the color LCD. The exercise addresses +3.3v to +5v level translation for each of the devices and discusses driver selection and alignment for the LCD. The gLCD library by Tom Carpenter is used for communicating with the color LCD.Source code for the sketches presented in this exercise are available at GitHub.
