Arduino Tutorial – connecting a parallel LCD

Lcdblue162Ard
We do not include a LCD with the Adafruit Arduino starter pack (yet) but it’s a common add-on and a popular request for a tutorial, so here we go! An Arduino LCD tutorial. The LCDs we sell at Adafruit have a low power LED backlight, run on +5v and require only 6 data pins to talk to. You can use any data pins you want! This tutorial will cover character LCDs…


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

  1. This is an excellent tutorial, and the idea of soldering the LCD onto a protoshield… pure genius. I’ll be ordering a couple more protoshield PCBs in a bit, and I’ll definitely dedicate one for this!
