This design provides an interface between a 9600 baud (or similar) serial line from a Microchip PIC, Arduino, Parallax Basic Stamp, NetMedia BX24, PICAXE and similar and a character LCD having an HD44780 interface.

The serial interface is TTL. That is, the idle state is a TTL logic one, or near +5 VDC. This is often termed non-inverting or true. This provides direct compatibility with the UART associated with a PIC, SerOut on a Basic Stamp and Com3 on a BX24. When interfacing with a PC or similar where the logic is inverted, an inverter is required. This might be as simple as a single 2N3904 NPN transistor.

(this is a very useful computer interfacing resource for instrumentation - delabs)
