  • SparkFun 16x2 Character LCD Display
  • Features an AVR-based, RGB on Black Liquid Crystal Display
  • Provides a simple and cost-effective solution to show texts and numbers
  • Uses an on-board ATmega328P AVR microcontroller

The SparkFun 16x2 Character LCD Display RBG on Black 3.3V is an AVR-based, serial enabled LCD that provides a simple and cost-effective solution for adding a 16x2 RGB on Black Liquid Crystal Display into your project. This module features a new PCB design on the back of the screen by including an ATmega328P that handles all of the screen control, meaning a backpack is no longer needed!

This display can now communicate in three different ways: serial, I2C, and SPI. This simplifies the number of wires needed and allows your project to display all kinds of text and numbers.
