Hi !

I have acquired a AVR-MT-128 from OLIMEX and the Codevision code works fine.

Even though I like C I would like to use BASCOM AVR as well but so far had no success with the LCD. Other tests such as the Relay and buzzer have worked fine.

The following is a translation of the C code com Olimex example that I ported to BASCOM. The LCD pin assignment have been made correctly but nothing shows up on the LCD.

Notice that I have not used in the internal Bascom LCD routines, they wont work at all.

Did anyone had the experience of using BASCOM Avr with this Olimex board ?

Thanks,

Hey Max, I had some troubles to find out this one (I'm TOTALLY new to AVR) but here it is:

You have to include the following lines at the start of the program, preferably after the REGFILE$ and other $ directives :

$lib "lcd4busy.lib"
Const _lcdport = Portc
Const _lcdddr = Ddrc
Const _lcdin = Pinc
Const _lcd_e = 2
Const _lcd_rw = 1
Const _lcd_rs = 0

Then all you have to do is use the LCD command to send the text to the LCD.

:wink:

I do not have the file lcd4busy.lib

Where is it?
By rmillqvist

Max,
I you have the full version of Bascom it will be in the Bascom-avr\lib directory, if you have the demo version there will be a compiled library called lcd4busy.LBX that does the same thing.

hi

A small fix on the lcd and you dont need this setup

un-soilder the RW pin from LCD & AVR
add a 3 pin jumper
join 1&2 for orginal mode
or 2&3 for Bascom FIX
(if you only use bascom then just connect LCD RW to GND)
see images below

now you can use lcd like this in Bascom :
Code: Select all
'SparkFunElectronics Atmega128
'Development Board.
'PROJECT: Test setup

$regfile = "m128def.dat"

'Real Sparkfun
$crystal = 16000000

Config Lcdpin = Pin , Db4 = Portc.4 , Db5 = Portc.5 , Db6 = Portc.6 , Db7 = Portc.7 , E = Portc.2 , Rs = Portc.0

'Config Buzzer

Its even easyer then making a hardware change, add "wr = portc.1" to the config lcd code and it works without modifications.:-)
