The above LCD come with out the I2C adapter soldered on the rear. It is best to order LCD with the adater solderin. Do not get caught as I did and have to source then afterwards and spent time soldering them in place. Most implementations of LCD screens call fo rthe I2C connections as the alternative is six precious pin to run th LCD.

This is the unit you should buy (NOTE the I2C adaptor on the rear):

Library Functions

Library Support Functions:




The HD44780U dot-matrix liquid crystal display controller and driver.

The PCA8574/74A provide general purpose remote I/O expansion for most microcontroller families via the two-line bidirectional I2C-bus (serial clock (SCL), serial data (SDA)).


IIC/I2C/TWI/SPI Serial Interface

Image Image

This is a IIC/I2C/TWI/SPI Serial Interface. As the pin resources of Arduino controller is limited, with the I2C interface module, you will be able to realize data display via only 2 wires. If you already has I2C devices in the project, this LCD module uses the same pin resources.

Dupont Wire:

I2C (Inter-Integrated Circuit), pronounced I-squared-C, is a synchronous, multi-master, multi-slave, packet switched, single-ended, serial computer bus invented in 1982 by Philips Semiconductor (now NXP Semiconductors). It is widely used for attaching lower-speed peripheral ICs to processors and microcontrollers in short-distance, intra-board communication. Alternatively I2C is spelled I2C (pronounced I-two-C) or IIC (pronounced I-I-C).
