EEE311: Arduino Part 4 - Displays
Class Number 627-51451

A working Arduino display is a vital component to making interactive products, enabling them to feed information and simple graphics back to you and your users without being attached to a computer.

In this installment of the Arduino programming series, you will learn how to attach a working display to your Arduino project and feed it information to display.

You will learn both the hardware and software aspects of working with an LCD screen on your Arduino, practice feeding data to it and make the display respond to values input by buttons and a temperature-sensing thermistor. Finally, you will have the opportunity to make a button-controlled animated stick figure.

Prerequisites: You should be able to program an Arduino reasonably well. Our Arduino Level 2 and 3 classes will prepare you for this class. Please bring your assembled Arduino board with you to this class. You can bring the one you built in the Arduino Level 1 class, or you may bring one you purchased.

Your lab fee will pay for a display, breadboard, wire kit and various small parts required for the class. They are yours to keep after class.
