Today is Arduino Day 2014! We’ll be posting all day about Arduino projects, products, tutorials, and more. Don’t forget to tune in here at 7 PM EST for our very special LIVE show featuring Massimo Banzi, co-founder and CEO of Arduino! Happy 10th Birthday Arduino!

To get things started here’s one of Adafruit’s most popular tutorials on how to use an LCD Display with your Arduino.

In this lesson, you will learn how to wire up and use an alphanumeric LCD display.

The display has an LED backlight and can display two rows with up to 16 characters on each row. You can see the rectangles for each character on the display and the pixels that make up each character. The display is just white on blue and is intended for showing text.

See the full tutorial here.

Featured in this Guide:

  • Standard LCD 16×2 + extras
  • Premium Male/Male Jumper Wires – 40 x 6 (150mm)
  • Half-size breadboard
  • Arduino Uno R3 (Atmega328 – assembled)
