PIC based 5-digit multi function display module
Out of stock with supplier, this item can't be ordered at this point in time.
The module's core components comprise an LCD and a PIC microcontroller. The display consists of a 5-digit, 14-segment starburst LCD with green LED backlighting. Each LCD segment is software-addressable, allowing the user to display numbers, text and non-standard characters.
The PIC processor used (a 4MHz 16F877) features a reduced instruction set (RISC) architecture, making it easy for the user - novice or advanced - to develop professional software quickly. The PIC processor contains 8k 14-bit words of Flash program memory, allowing the module to be programmed in-circuit, and then re-programmed if necessary. This ensures that the latest firmware revision can be downloaded into the module, or changed on-the-fly.
An internal 256 byte EEPROM features a pre-programmed character generator, making the display of text particularly easy.
