I am very new to electronics and the PIC. I have managed to get my
16F84 controlling some servos in response to a SRF04 ultrasonic range
I now want to display the distance on the LCD. It is a 16 Chr 2 line
display. It has a +5, Ground and 1 serial pin.
I can not find anything on the internet showing me how to link this to
my pic or any reference as to what commands in PICBASIC I should use.
I think I need to use the serout or lcdout commands but don't know if
I need another component between the PIC and the display. I keep
reading about MAX232 chips.
Could someone be kind enough to explain in beginner's terms how I
connect the LCD to my 16F84 and what PICBASIC PRO commands I need to
send data to it?
Very many thanks
