connect lcd to 8051

is it 44780 type? i hope it's standard lcd.
You can access that type of LCD with 4 bit or 8 bit mode for the data. i think you should try the 8 bit first because it's easier. both of them on above site.
Good luck

connecting lcd screen to pic microcontroller

Hi Buddy,
The main thing to find out is the type of LCD..

Now a days LCD comes with lots of interface..ex: LVDS, RGB, TTL, DVI interfcae..

now suppose if you are using LVDS interface LCD then you will need a chip like DS90C385A...
a transreciver for converting the TTL signal into LVDS..
if you are using VGA interfcae then you need analog transmisster and amplifer (depends upon the gain, load, SI)
Analog Tx -ADV7125..

LET ME KNOW THE TYPE OF LCD AND uC INTERFACE YOU ARE USING..
THEN I CAN HELP YOU MORE..

CHEERS,
TOM

Hi all
I have expwerience with standard alphanumeric displays connected to PIC micro-controllers. I am trying to get to grips with graphical LCDs now and have one made by EDT with the number 20-20420-2 sourced from Allen Bradley panelview 550. Does anyone know the pinout and any extra info for this? It has LC79401 and LC79430 ic on it. Thanks for your help!
