16x2 Parallel LCD Add-On

Replacement: None. We now include a LCD with our SIK and are no longer carrying this retail LCD add-on in our catalog. This page is for reference only.

This is the same product as the LCD Add-on for SIK. The difference is this version comes in fancy clamshell packaging meant for our distributors that need it. Regular customers are welcome to order, but we want to limit the amount of extra packaging finding its way into the trash heap.

Nothing is cooler than visual feedback for a project. Well, there are cooler things, but just go with it. This is an add-on to the SparkFun Inventor's Kit (SIK) which gives you the ability to use an LCD as a visual interface for your project.

Note: This version just includes the basic parts and is meant as an add-on for the SparkFun Inventor's Kit. Some soldering is required.
