1 Introduction

  • Follow the following step-by-step instructions to complete the BGS LCD display.
  • First solder the Arduino Nano to the PCB, then you will need the following components:
  • 120 ohm resistor
  • 1k resistor
  • 10k resistor
  • 100uF electrolytic capacitor
  • 1N4001 diode
  • Header pins

  • The finished product, there are now 3 pins to connect to your own PCB,
  • +5V (the red wire), this is the 5V power input
  • Gnd (the black wire), this is the ground or negative
  • Rx (receive input), this is the input form the Genie microcontroller.
