Adafruit Industries® - 16x2 LCD + Keypad, Kits for Raspberry Pi®

 

 

 

Product Description 

 

Adafruit wanted to make it easier for people to get an LCD into their projects so they devised a Pi plate that lets you control a 16x2 Character LCD, up to 3 backlight pins AND 5 keypad pins using only the two I2C pins on the Pi!

 

The best part is you don't really lose those two pins either, since you can stick i2c-based sensors, RTCs, etc and have them share the I2C bus. This is a super slick way to add a display without all the wiring hassle.

 

The integrated plating under the LCD is perfect for when you want to build a stand-alone project with its own user interface.

 

The 4 directional buttons plus select button allows basic control without having to attach a bulky computer. The kit is designed for any Raspberry Pi - version 1 and 2.
