Arduino Geiger–Müller counter with LCD display

IMG_2569

Bob tipped us with his latest project. It’s a custom Arduino shield able to communicate with a Geiger-Muller counter and display data on a LCD display. The data are displayed in two layouts: bar graph of the pulses in one minute interval and histogram of the gathered data.

In the previous posts I’ve described a simple Geiger–Müller counter and various experiments with this device. Today I would like to present Arduino project to communicate with a Geiger-Muller counter, gather data and present it to the user. The device is based on Arduino Uno, Nokia 5110 LCD and homemade shield.

An Atmega library for multiple HD44780 LCDs

LCD_PCF8574_I2C_multiple_library

Davide Gironi has posted an I2C multiple HD44780 AVR Atmega library:

This library implements a driver for HD44780 lcd connected through PCF8574 port expander.
Data is transmitted using only 2 wire over i2c with the PCF8574.
This library can drive up to 8 LCD concurrently.
Lcd driver is based upon Peter Fleury’s lcd driver
HD44780 to i2c library its based upon this library

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.
