When developing embedded electronics one often needs to monitor certain variables in real time as a part of the development or debugging process. In many cases debuggers are not able to provide the diagnostic information you need in real time. In these cases, an LCD display may come in handy.
The purpose of this project is to develop a circuit board that receives data from an external circuit board (under development) via serial interface, and display the data on an LCD display module. It is mainly intended to be a diagnostic/debugging tool, displaying data from external microcontroller circuits under development. It can however, be used in any application where data needs to be displayed on an LCD.
A first usable version developed, with functionality described above. Large potential for further development.
