Introduction: Atmega16 Interfacing With LCD in 4 Bit Mode (Proteus Simulation)

About: Hi all, I'm Pawan Joshi who works on embedded system and IoT. I'm really passionate about embedded system and IoT. Here through this page you will come to know about embedded system from scratch to the latest …

Here in this tutorial we're going to tell you about how you can interface atmega16 microcontroller with 16*2 LCD in 4 bit mode.

Step 1: Software Used:

Atmel Studio 7: Studio 7 is the integrated development platform (IDP) for developing and debugging all AVR® and SAM microcontroller applications. The Atmel Studio 7 IDP gives you a seamless and easy-to-use environment to write, build and debug your applications written in C/C++ or assembly code.

Here is the download link

2 Proteus Software for simulation: This is the software to show simulation. You will get lot of information to download this software.

Step 2: Component Used:

Here in our demo video we are using proteus simulation but definitely if you are doing it in your hardware you will be required these components for this project:

AVR Development Board: You can buy Atmega 16 IC and can make your own custom board, any how you can also get the Atmega16/32 Development board.

So if you have this board it will be better so that you can easily upload the code by yourself.

LCD 16*2: This is 16*2 LCD . In this LCD we have 16 pins.

AVR ISP USB Programmer: This programmer is a generic stand alone hardware tool allowing you to read and write many AVR based ATMEL micro-controller.

Some Jumper Wires: We need some jumper wires also to connect programmer and LCD to AVR microcontroller board.

Step 3: Code:

You can get the source code from our Github link.

Step 4: Circuit Diagram:

Step 5: Video:

The whole Project Description is given in above video
