ATM18 display for the Elektor AVR project
An ordinary LCD panel can be driven from a microcontroller using either four or eight data wires. In addition to these, an RS signal is needed to distinguish data from commands, and an E signal is needed to clock the data into the panel. This large total number of connections is unfortunate in our application because it ties up a number of port pins that could be used for other purposes.
