- 16 characters wide, 2 rows
- White text on blue background
- Can be fully controlled with only 6 digital lines! (Any analog/digital pins can be used)
- Pins are documented on the back of the LCD to assist in wiring it up
Standard HD44780 LCDs are useful for creating standalone projects. The connection port on this is 0.1" pitch, single row for easy breadboarding and wiring. It includes a single LED backlight that can be dimmed easily with a resistor or PWM and uses much less power than LCD with EL (electroluminescent) backlights. English/Japanese text is supported with the built in character set, see the HD44780 datasheet for the full character set. Plus, up to 8 extra characters can be created for custom glyphs or 'foreign' language support. The necessary contrast potentiometer and strip of header is included.
