Resources and Going Further

The focus of this project was simply to show you how to send data wirelessly. The great thing about the simplicity of this tutorial is that you could change out the sensor board we used for any one of many sensors with relative ease. You could also add another Qwiic sensor to this setup such as the SparkFun Ambient Light Sensor to add another data point which expands the dataset showing on your LCD. Looking through the hookup guides for the sensor you would like to use is a great place to start.

If you want to learn more about the SparkFun components used in this project, you can find that information in the hookup guides below.

AVR-Based Serial Enabled LCDs Hookup Guide

The AVR-based Qwiic Serial Enabled LCDs are a simple and cost effective solution to include in your project. These screens are based on the HD44780 controller, and include ATmega328P with an Arduino compatible bootloader. They accept control commands via Serial, SPI and I2C (via PTH headers or Qwiic connector). In this tutorial, we will show examples of a simple setup and go through each communication option.
