With the growing importance of the embedded systems, the need to design embedded applications with microcontrollers having advance features is gaining prominence. In the presented work I2C protocol is used to make an interactive information display that can be used at various places for providing information relevant to the customer, public or student. For example it can be used as an inquiry display in the university inquiry offices to help the students regarding the queries they have by displaying the proper information on the display module time to time. This embedded system is having serial link with the host computer for sending the data to the information display module. More intelligence are added in the presented work by password protecting the system access so only authorized person can send the message or information to the display. Once the information is send to the display module it is also stored in the external memory using I2C protocol. If the system is disconnected from the computer them the last stored message will be displayed on the display module.

[...] Often, multiple slaves can use common data and clock lines, with each slave having its own select line or address. One of the most popular synchronous interfaces is the inter-integrated circuit which was developed by Philips nearly 20 years ago. I2C is a low-bandwidth, short-distance, two wire interfaces that was originally designed to enable communication between devices inside a TV. Now, I2C interface is implemented in over 1000 different devices. Some microcontrollers have a hardware I2C controller built-in (e.g., the P8xC528 from Philips and the PIC16C6x from Microchip). An all-software implementation of I2C protocol is also possible. [...]

[...] In our case the system is connected to port1 so COM1 is selected as shown above. Press OK and provide the configuration as shown in the Figure6. Figure-6: Baud Rate configuration. Press if you want to save the string and display it on the LCD display. After storing the information HyperTerminal will be disconnected from the system. For changing the string again please once again connect to the hyper terminal as explained above and proceed further or stay connected to change the string in short time durations. [...]
