Creating a serial LCD can be very useful for quick debugging; as well as projects requiring LCD support with minimal interface. The circuit presented here may not satisfy all needs, but it should serve as a good starting point for further work.

How does serial LCD interface work?
It is quite simple really. Using a microcontroller with a built-in HW UART, the information form the HW UART is received and passed on to the LCD using 4-bit control. The LCD is a standard 2x16 character...

I am still not familiar with laying out pictures and making them always come out right. But you can always look at the attached files. Take a look at the "serial_lcd.jpg".
