After calling the D-Stick init routine and LCD
init routine, we use the PBP3 arraywrite built-in
function to place our LCD messages into the lcdBuf
array. The second message (Design Cycle) is
directed by our lcdGoto subroutine to display on
the second line of the Explorer 8 LCD.
Yep. It Does.
Every line of PBP3 code we’ve written has
been rewarded with the stuff you see in Photo 3.
The Advanced PIC18F47K40 D-Stick is performing
flawlessly. You can also use the Advanced D-Stick
and PBP3 under the MPLABX IDE (integrated
development environment). If you are a C
programmer, the new D-Stick can be controlled via
your C programs too.
■ PHOTO 3. All of the lights are on and the Explorer 8’s LCD
module is filled with our messages.
The entire set of Explorer 8 LCD driver routines are
available for download from the article link. This will make
it a bit easier to add the Advanced PIC18F47K40 D-Stick
to your Design Cycle. NV
