Description: This is a basic 8 character by 2 line display with black text on green background. The screen utilizes the extremely common HD44780 parallel interface chipset. Interface code is freely available. You will need ~11 general I/O pins to interface to this LCD screen. Includes LED backlight.
You can use the example sketch in the Arduino IDE to get up and running in no time.
Note: This will work with our serial backpack, but it will not connect directly due to the different pin layout.
Dimensions: 1.574" x 1.411"

If you have a small project with need of an LCD, this is the one for you. There isnt much space on the screen, but it is certainly tiny. I have used this LCD in several projects and it works very well.
