Arduino and SerLCD 2.5

Hooking up the Sparkfun SerLCD was a breeze, transmission over the Arduino’s RX pin resulted in text printing to the serial module. I am using the SerLCD module connected to a GDM1602K Basic 16×2 Character LCD – White on Black 5V.

Using the SparkFunSerLcd Arduino library also made things easier– this library allows use of Software Serial, allowing serial tranmission over any of the digital i/o pins. Apparently uploading to the Arduino whilst pluggin in to the SerLCD on the RX pin can cause corruption of the SerLCD module memories.

Hello Serial!
