Richard Wall: chipKIT Pro and LCDs

Last week, we talked about using delays and interrupts with the chipKIT Pro in our Learn modules. Today, we’re going to get into the seventh project using the chipKIT Pro MX7 in this series by Richard Wall.

Using chipKIT Pro to Control LCDs” seeks to investigate concepts involving parallel communications and handshaking. You will experiment with the mechanisms required to synchronize asynchronous systems using hardware and software handshaking, as well as explicit and implicit handshaking. You will learn how to build a project that consists of multiple C files. We will also look into using variables in software macros.
