USB HID DRIVE OF LCD MODULE

Using PIC18F2550 for connecting 16x2 LCD module to USB port . Included Visual Basic 6 code, VS2005 C# code based on Microchip code, PIC C code and a circuit diagram. The circuit is powered by the USB. The interface to the PC is HID class.
There are several makes of the LCD module that are interchangeable, the one I used is UC-16207. The LCD module has a 14 way connector, 8 pins are used for data, 2 for supply, register select(RS), read/write, enable (E) and contrast adjust. The R/W input must be connected to earth to make sure that data lines are in input mode. The VB application has only basic functions, it can be changed to interface the display for a variety of inputs.
When USB is plugged it verifies the connection with the host and then initialize the LCD. On typing a character the USB updates all the 32 characters.
HID class (human interface device) is a class of devices like the mouse and the keyboard, the data transfer rate is limited to 64KB/S. The PC already has a driver for HID USB.
VB6 code includes guidance to setting up the PC. The PC register the PID and VID (product ID) of the USB device when it's plugged, the VB code uses these ID's to communicate with the device. For commercial VID it is needed to buy it from USB-IF, but in your lab you can use any number.
The source code is derived from freeware from these sources: http://janaxelson.com/usb.htm , http://openprog.altervista.org/USB_firm_eng.html
Code was written on MPLAB 8x and compiled with C18 ver 3.30. PIC18F2550 was programmed using Velleman K8076.
Software includes PIC code and VB6 code. You are free to use the circuit diagram and the VB software with no limitations.

The VB6 application.

PIC18F2550
Pin 14 is 3.3V internal supply for the USB transceiver. 0.22uF is required for regulation.
Pins 21 to 28 are port B outputs.
Pins 15,16 are the data lines to the USB connector on the PC.
Pin 20 is the PC 5V powering the PIC and the LCD module. It is limited to 100mA by the PC. 0.47uF is for decoupling.

LCD Module
20K trimmer is needed to adjust the contrast voltage which vary with different batches of LCD.
Pins 7 to 14 are data inputs D0 to D7. Pin 6 is clock input, enables LCD module to read the data.
Pin 4 is Register Select input, it is used for 16 bits instruction.
Pin 5 must be connected to earth to insure that data lines are always inputs.
