LCD1602 Character LCD Shield for Arduino with Keypad


 Sold Out 

This LCD shield for the Arduino provides a very convenient and nice output for any project.  It is great for displaying text, numbers, and it even allows custom characters to be programmed.


  • 6 pushbutton keypad (5 user programmable and 1 reset)
  • Potentiometer to adjust the contrast
  • LED backlight attached to PWM pin 10 to adjust intensity
  • Compatibility with the LiquidCrystal library (please see note)
  • 4 bit interface with HD44780 compatible commands
  • The color is white text on a blue background

Note on the LiquidCrystal library: this shield uses slightly a different pin map than the original design that is built into Arduino's IDE.  It is necessary to tell the library this which can be done by changing one line from "LiquidCrystal lcd(12, 11, 5, 4, 3, 2);" to "LiquidCrystal lcd(8, 9, 4, 5, 6, 7);"
