Introduction: Interfacing LCD With Intel Galileo
TITLE: INTERFACING LCD WITH INTEL
This project aims at interfacing an LCD with an Intel Galileo. The LCD displays a welcome statement. This is facilitated by code program that is uploaded to the Intel Galileo.
The LCD used is a 16x2 and it’s connected to the Intel Galileo and a variable resistor and power (5v) is supplied to the components.
This project is simple to follow and understand
The following components have been used in this project, namely:
1) Intel Galileo
2) Liquid Crystal Display
3) Variable Resistor
4) Bread board (optional)
Place the Intel Galileo, LCD and the Variable resistor in good position that will facilitate an efficient connection among them.
Use the data sheets for the LCD and the Intel Galileo as a guide during the connections.
First perform the connections between the Intel Galileo and the LCD, connecting the various pins to their as per the data sheets' guide.
Connect now the variable resistor.
Bias the circuitry appropriately
Confirm that all the connections have been done appropriately.
Open Atmel studio or Arduino IDE in your PC , and write the program that will be uploaded to the Intel Galileo
Write this code in that Programming IDE

/* add setup code here, setup code runs once when the processor starts */
/* add main program code here, this code starts again each time it ends */
for (int i=0;i<2;i++)
Build and Verify your code, if it has been verified successfully, upload it to the Intel Galileo.
Observe the characters displayed on the LCD
The project should run successfully,
hence achieving the aim of this project.
