LCD 1602 2x16 character blue, white back light, I2C is a standard type character LCD with 2 lines and 2x16 characters, blue background, and bright white LED back light. This high contrast LCD features the standard Hitachi HD44780 display controller (or compatible), with the advantage of a simple 2-wire serial interfase (I2C, SDA/SCL) to save on micro controller connections. Several different I2C bus addresses can be selected to run more than 1 display on the same I2C bus the same time. It is supported for example by the Arduino IDE, using the common LiquidCrystal and Wire libraries (examples in the downloads below). The display needs 5V power supply, the LED back light can also be controlled by a software command.
This item is available as kit (LCD and interface board separated) or assembled module.
