What can we display on 16×2 lcd?
We can also display custom character’s on 16×2 lcd. By custom characters i mean we can create our own characters and can display them on 16×2 lcd. To display custom characters we utilize the internal CG-RAM(Character generated Random Access Memory) of 16×2 lcd controller. Custom characters generation are not part of this project. I have separate tutorials on them.
