Interfacing 20*4 LCD with arduino

Hello Friends,

In this tutorial, we are going to interface 20*4 lcd with arduino uno. As the name suggests it has 4 rows and twenty columns. In total, we can show 80 characters. It has blue backlight. It has 16 pins just like 16*2. The pin configuration of 20*4 lcd is similar to that of 16*2 lcd.

How to burn Arduino bootloader to atmega 328

In this post we will learn, how to burn hex file in avr microcontroller using programmer and burner software.

List of components/software:

1. USBasp programmer
2. Target circuit board having microcontroller (mine have atmega328)
3. Avrdudes (Burner software)

USBasp driver installed in your system.
If it is not installed, then read instructions about installation from my previous post.
USBasp driver installation

Default fuse byte for atmega328 is: LFUSE = 0X62 and HFUSE = 0XD9. It might vary
This corresponds to internal rc oscillator

This corresponds to external oscillator having frequency 16 MHz
