NEW PRODUCT – Assembled Standard LCD 16×2 + extras – White on Blue
Standard HD44780 LCDs are useful for creating standalone projects. This product is similar to our
Standard LCD 16×2 display but comes with the header soldered on! 16 characters wide, 2 rows
White text on blue background
Connection port is 0.1" pitch, single row for easy breadboarding and wiring
Pins are documented on the back of the LCD to assist in wiring it up
Single LED backlight included can be dimmed easily with a resistor or PWM and uses much less power than LCD with EL (electroluminescent) backlights
Can be fully controlled with only 6 digital lines! (Any analog/digital pins can be used)
Built in character set supports English/Japanese text, see the HD44780 datasheet for the full character set
Up to 8 extra characters can be created for custom glyphs or 'foreign' language support
necessary contrast potentiometer

detailed step-by-step Arduino+LCD tutorial.
a datasheet that has dimensions and pin-locations and then a HD44780 datasheet with the detailed commands for control.
In stock and shipping now!
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.
