All LCD based products, with the exception of some embedded systems, will require a controller to provide a suitable interface and very often a range of display functions critical to a project.

Designing a custom LCD display controller

When a standard LCD controller is not suitable for a particular display screen or application, OEMs must choose between custom designing their own, or hiring a company that specializes in building custom LCD controllers, such as Digital View. In this article, Digital View explains how to approach a custom LCD controller project, and why even experienced engineers sometimes prefer to outsource these designs.

Arduino and Ethernet Interface

Arduino is an open-source electronics prototyping platform based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software. It's intended for artists, designers, hobbyists, and anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments.

Arduino Open-source Electronics Prototyping

Arduino Open-source Electronics Prototyping

The Arduino Uno is a microcontroller board based on the ATmega328 (datasheet). It has 14 digital input/output pins (of which 6 can be used as PWM outputs), 6 analog inputs, a 16 MHz ceramic resonator, a USB connection, a power jack, an ICSP header, and a reset button.

It contains everything needed to support the microcontroller; simply connect it to a computer with a USB cable or power it with a AC-to-DC adapter or battery to get started.

Arduino Ethernet

Arduino Ethernet

The Ethernet differs from other boards in that it does not have an onboard USB-to-serial driver chip, but has a Wiznet Ethernet interface. This is the same interface found on the Ethernet shield.

The Arduino Ethernet is a microcontroller board based on the ATmega328 (datasheet). It has 14 digital input/output pins, 6 analog inputs, a 16 MHz crystal oscillator, a RJ45 connection, a power jack, an ICSP header, and a reset button.
