Key Features:

  • This kit makes it easy to use a 16x2 Character LCD on your next project
  • Uses only the I2C pin
  • Included is a high quality, USA-made PCB and all the components (buttons, header etc)! - Kit does not come with a 16x2 LCD.
  • Compatible with classic Arduinos plus the Mega R3!

Adafruit devised a shield that lets you control a 16x2 Character LCD, up to 3 backlight pins AND 5 keypad pins using only the two I2C pins on the Arduino! The best part is you don't really lose those two pins either, since you can stick i2c-based sensors, RTCs, etc and have them share the I2C bus. This is a super slick way to add a display without all the wiring hassle.

This shield is perfect for when you want to build a stand-alone project with its own user interface. The 4 directional buttons plus select button allows basic control without having to attach a bulky computer. It is designed for compatibility with 'classic' Arduinos such as the Uno, Duemilanove, Diecimilla, etc. It will also work perfectly with Arduino Mega R3's. Earlier Mega's have the I2C pins in a different location and will require you to solder two wires from the I2C pins on the shield and plug them into the different I2C locations at Digital 20 & 21. This shield will not fit easily on top of an Arduino Ethernet because of the Ethernet jack height.
