USB LCD Backpack PIC18F24J50 free PCB build update

Posted on Tuesday, February 28th, 2012 in builds, firmware by DP

Dolabra posted an update on his USB LCD Backpack PIC18F24J50 free PCB build. This version used a different chip than the 18F2550 we used in the final revision. The USB LCD Backpack connects HD44780-compatible character LCD screens to your USB port.

I put the bootloader problems aside and finished the UART support. This version will work from either USB or the UART. As proof see the picture of LCD Smartie running through the Bus Pirate in transparent UART mode
