Connection Diagram

This will have to be the easiest step, since you just need to take the LCD module and plug it on to your raspberry pi GPIO pins as shown in the below picture.


Program Writing

1.Writing an image to the SD card

In our supporting files, you will find the image file “2016-05-27-raspbian-jessie” which is an operation system come with a Desktop Environment.
You need to use an image writing tool like Win32DiskImager to install it on your SD card. Then write the image into your SD card.

2.Log in the Pi

Insert the SD Card and finally attach the power supply.
The Raspberry Pi will boot immediately. This will take a little bit more than a minute. Once the Pi is booted it will ask you for the username and the password.
By default the following log-in credentials can be used:

  • Username: pi
  • Password: raspberry


How to connect Raspberry Pi 3B

1.Burn the image file “2016-05-27-raspbian-jessie” in the storage card of Raspberry Pi.
2.Log in Raspberry Pi with desktop display system, place LCD-show-160813.tar file in the Pi folder on Raspberry Pi system through WinSCP.
3.Execute tar xzvf LCD-show-160813.tar in the terminal. unzip LCD-show-160813.tar to get LCD-show folder.
4.Input cd LCD-show in the terminal to enter folder and type sudo ./LCD-show to run program.
