Hello, I am creating a small project with a big lcd 40x4 (JHD404A), but I don't find a library for chipkit max 32. Can our help me pleeease??

I got these devices to work with chipKIT using the Arduino library without modification:

I suspect there libraries will not work with your display without modification.

Hi Jacob, I have this library, and it works well with the Arduino close and AVR chip. But when I try to compile for the ChipKIT uC32 I get a message that says this library will only work on ARV chips, it's in "libraries\NewliquidCrystal\SI2CIO.cpp:210:2: error: #error "ONLY SUPPORTED ON AVR PROCESSORS"". So I am stuck too. I want to use my I2C 16x2 LCD screen with the ChipKIT as I have three flavors of these.

I use the library from adafruit with my 16x2 LCD ( without issues. For simplicity I have attached the zipped library.

Ciao, Mathias

Hi Mathias,

I have the same 16x2 LCD but I also have a LCM1602 IIC V1 - I2C adapter connected to it. This is not included in the Library. Luc

Hi Mathias, I stand corrected. All I had to was the #include "wire.h" line in the I2CIO.cpp file and now it works. Luc
