External Hardware Monitor

FQ37RENIR813BLJ.MEDIUM

Vincenzopaolo FlameE @ instructables.com shows us how to create an external hardware monitor based on Arduino and Nokia LCD display. Communication with the PC is done using Visual Basic program.

Hi guys! Today I will show you how create an external hardware monitor with any Arduino board(in my case a pro micro board), a Nokia 5110 LCD and some VB programming! Let’s get started!

How to interface OLED 0.96inch LCD with Arduino

FZ9CEEHIQSCI4WD.MEDIUM

This tutorial is going to teach you the basics on using OLED 0.96inch LCD128x64 with Arduino.

OLED 0.96 inch is a monochrome graphic display module with a built-in 0.96 inch, 128X64 high-resolution display. OLED 0.96inch is able to work despite the absence of backlight. In a dark environment, contrast of OLED display is higher than LCD display. This device is I^2C or SPI compatible. Due to its capability in displaying, it is often used in various application for instances, smart watch, MP3, function cellphone, portable health device and many others.

Make Your Own Smartwatch From An Old Cell Phone

lcd_watch

Have an old cell phone laying around? Don’t know what to do with it? What if I told you that you could turn that old cell phone into a smartwatch!

What I’d like to do for this crazy/ambitions project is turn an old cell phone into a smartwatch. So obviously an old cell phone is required. The primary reason for this project is simply that I had an old cell phone laying around and wanted to find a creative way to repurpose it. The one I had is a Nokia 1100, but most other old cell phones would work, so long as you can find the schematics for the LCD online

How to Scroll a single LCD line – Arduino

R Jordan Kreindler show us how to scroll a single line on a LCD display.

The Liquid Crystal Library has two quite useful functions scrollDisplayLeft() and scrollDisplayRight(). These functions scroll the whole display. That is, they scroll both lines on a 1602 LCD and all four lines on a 2004 LCD. What we often need is the ability to scroll a single line on these displays rather than the whole display. Also, we often want to scroll an entire line off the screen rather than just by one position, as the functions in the Liquid Crystal Library offer. This Instructable provides functions to do just that, and so should be thought of as an addition to the scrollDisplayLeft() and scrollDisplayRight() functions in the Liquid Crystal Library.

Arduino Uno Menu Template

PaulSS @ instructables.com shows us  how to build a menu for a LCD/button shield:

While working on a new Instructable (coming soon) I had decided to use an Arduino Uno with an LCD/button shield I purchased off of AliExpress. It’s a knockoff of the DFRobot Shield. I knew that I needed a menu for my project but was becoming so disillusioned with the terrible menu template programs available for the Arduino Uno. Many of which were not designed to work with this shield. I decided to make my own.

DIY Voltmeter using a simple voltage sensor and Arduino Uno and a Nokia 5110 LCD

In this video we are going to learn how to build our own voltmeter using a very inexpensive sensor. The voltage we measure is then displayed in a Nokia 5110 LCD display. This project is very easy to build and great learning experience.

With this project we can measure the voltage of our voltage sources, or monitor the battery level of our projects. Let’s see the project in action. I have connected two wires to the voltage sensor module I am using today. I place the red wire to the positive terminal of an AA battery and the black wire to the negative terminal of the battery. In the display we get its voltage. Let’s now try this 18650 battery, we get 3.6V. Let’s now measure this big 12V battery. The voltage is 12.2V. If we compare the readings with a Multimeter, we can see that the measurements are really close! The project is working fine. But be careful, the maximum input voltage that this sensor can measure is 25V, so if you exceed it, you are going to burn your Arduino Pin. Let’s now see how to build this project.

3.5″ Color TFT display ILI9481 on Arduino Uno and Mega

In this video we learn how to drive the new, low cost big, 3.5″ Color TFT display for Arduino Uno and Mega.

A few weeks ago, I discovered this promising new display on Banggood.com and thought that it might be useful in some of our projects. The price of the display is very low for such a big display, it costs 10$ and banggood.com was kind enough to send me a sample unit in order to test it and share my opinion about it with you.

DIY 32ch FPV 5.8ghz LCD

Spikey made his own DIY 32ch FPV 5.8ghz LCD. He writes:

If you’re like me, you don like buying stuff that’s ready-to-go, but rather build one yourself. We usually spend more money, but it’s way more satisfying I really didn’t want to buy an overly expensive FPV LCD receiver, so I made my own DIY 32ch FPV 5.8ghz LCD, that is compatible with EVERY transmitter on the market now.
