NOW IN STOCK – Graphic ST7565 LCD 128×64 + extras.

This graphical display looks great, costs less! The dark gray pixels are visible in daylight, and there’s also a white LED backlight, which turns light bluish-green when on.

Four mounting holes and a blank 9 pin 2mm-pitch labeled breakout on the side – we just soldered some wire to each hole as shown in the photos, very easy! (The LCDs have no wires soldered in when we ship them)

Bonus!
We’re including a free 4050 level shifter chip so that you can safely use it with your favorite 5V microcontroller

Advantages!

  • Lower cost than KS0108 LCDs
  • Serial interface uses only 4 or 5 digital pins
  • Low power LED backlight
  • Visible in daylight / without backlight
  • Works perfectly with 3V logic

Challenges!…

  • 3.3v power and logic means a level converter is needed for 5V Arduinos (we include this part when purchasing from us)
  • Microcontroller must buffer display – uses 1Kb of RAM. This means you must upgrade to a ATmega328 if you are using an Arduino with a ‘8 or ‘168

For a more detailed tutorial, including how to wire up the display with a 4050, see our writeup at http://www.ladyada.net/learn/lcd/st7565.html

We have C code and an Arduino library ready to go (we suggest reading the above tutorial too!) and don’t forget to read the datasheet.


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
