LcdDisplay.HD44780.MCP23017 (lcd_display v0.1.2) View Source

Knows how to commuticate with HD44780 type display through the 16-bit I/O expander MCP23017. You can turn on/off the backlight and change the LED color by switching on/off red, green and blue.

Usage

iex(2)>  Circuits.I2C.detect_devices
Devices on I2C bus "i2c-1":
* 32  (0x20)

1 devices detected on 1 I2C buses
config = %{
  display_name: "display 1", # the identifier
  i2c_bus: "i2c-1",          # I2C bus name
  i2c_address: 0x20,         # 7-bit address
  rows: 2,                   # the number of display rows
  cols: 16,                  # the number of display columns
  font_size: "5x8"           # "5x10" or "5x8"
}

# Start the LCD driver and get the initial display state.
{:ok, display} = LcdDisplay.HD44780.MCP23017.start(config)

# Run a command and the display state will be updated.
{:ok, display} = LcdDisplay.HD44780.MCP23017.execute(display, {:print, "Hello world"})

# Turn on/off `:red`, `:green` and `:blue` to change the backlight color.
{:ok, display} = LcdDisplay.HD44780.MCP23017.execute(display, {:red, false})

# Pick a random backlight color.
{:ok, display} = LcdDisplay.HD44780.MCP23017.execute(display, :random_color)
