The 16x2 LCD: Display Custom Characters

Hardware Design
           The hardware design for this project is just to follow the schematic we saw a few pages ago. Luckily there aren't too many connections that need to be made, just double check with your multimeter (continuity tester) that everything is wired up and touching. I already wire-wrapped my setup together, so I'll show a few pictures of the assembled setup I'm using.

Building The Circuit

           Again, nothing special was done here, I followed the schematic and wire-wrapped the pins on the LCD to the PIC, as well as to the trimpot for contrast and to power and ground.
