Keypad With LCD Using CloudX Microcontroller

Intro: Keypad With LCD Using CloudX Microcontroller

For this project, we will accept data from a Matrix Keypad and then display it on an LCD

Module.

Step 1: COMPONENT NEEDED

  • CLOUDX MICROCONTROLLER
  • CLOUDX SOFTCARD
  • V3 USB CORD
  • LCD 16x2
  • KEYPAD 4x4
  • VARIABLE RESISTOR (103)
  • JUMPER WIRE

Step 2: SETTING UP YOUR HARDWARE

first step:

LCD connection: we re going to use data 4 - data 7 pin, register select pin, enable pin.

  • connect RS pin to pin1 of the Microcontroller
  • connect EN pin to pin2 of the Microcontroller
  • connect D4 pin to pin3 of the Microcontroller
  • connect D5 pin to pin4 of the Microcontroller
  • connect D6 pin to pin5 of the Microcontroller
  • connect D7 pin to pin6 of the Microcontroller
  • connect Vss and led negative pin to GND
  • connect Vdd and led positive pin to 5v
  • connect the variable resistor middle pin to VE(contrast V). and the other pin to 5v and GND.

Second step:

Keypad connection: we are using pullDown resistor for the keypad column pins.

  • The pin1 of the keypad column pin was connected to 10k resistor and to pin11 of the microcontroller.
  • The pin2 of the keypad column pin was connected to 10k resistor and to pin12 of the microcontroller.
  • The pin3 of the keypad column pin was connected to 10k resistor and to pin13 of the microcontroller.
  • The pin4 of the keypad column pin was connected to 10k resistor and to pin14 of the microcontroller.

And the end of the resistor was connected together to GND.

  • The pin1 of the keypad Row pin was connected to pin7 of the microcontroller.
  • The pin2 of the keypad Row pin was connected to pin8 of the microcontroller.
  • The pin3 of the keypad Row pin was connected to pin9 of the microcontroller.
  • The pin4 of the keypad Row pin was connected to pin10 of the microcontroller

After achieving it, let go to coding.

Step 3: CODING

Copy this code to your CloudX IDE.

#include <CloudX\M633.h>
#include <CloudX\Lcd.h> #include <CloudX\Keypad.h>
#define NumberOfRows 4 // set the number of ROWS for Keypad
#define NumberOfColumns 4 // set the number of COLUMNS for Keypad
char KeypadCharacters[NumberOfRows][NumberOfColumns] = {
 '1','2','3','A',
 '4','5','6','B',
 '7','8','9','C',
 '*','0','#','D'
 }; //layout of the Keypad’s Keys
char RowPins[NumberOfRows] = {7, 8, 9, 10}; // Keypad’s Row Pins to CloudX
char ColumnsPins[NumberOfColumns] = {11, 12, 13, 14}; // Keypad’s Column Pins
char Keys; //store Keypad output here
setup(){
 //setup here
 Lcd_setting(1,2,3,4,5,6);
 Lcd_cmd(cursorOff);
 Lcd_cmd(clear);
Keypad_setting (PULLDOWNCOL, RowPins, ColumnsPins, NumberOfRows, NumberOfColumns,
KeypadCharacters); // initialize Keypad with these data
loop(){
 //Program here
 while(Keys==0) //if no Key is Pressed keep checking for a Key Press
 Keys=Keypad_getKey();//if a Key is Pressed load Key data into the Keys variable
 Lcd_writeCP(Keys); // Display the Key Pressed on LCD’s Current Cursor Position
 Keys=0; //Clear the Content of the Keys variable
 }
}
