I came across the Arduino platform recently, and I thought I would create a place to share information about various projects. I bought an Arduino Mega 2560 and got it working very quickly. I completed a couple of projects with it, including driving an LCD display and making some stepper motors spin.
The LCD project was interesting. I bought the LCD117 Serial Display Board and 16 x 2 LCD Display from moderndevice.com along with some other stuff. I read some of the tutorials on the web about how to create and display custom characters. I whipped up a Windows based program in Delphi to assist in creating the code for custom characters, and I have posted the installer for the program in a zip file. Click on the screenshot to download the installer, then post comments with feedback after you have a chance to try it so I can implement changes and/or improvements.
