Want to display fonts, numbers, and symbols on LCD? So for you, we are presenting the Grove – 16×2 LCD v2.0. This is a white on blue display having 16 characters and 2 rows with high brightness backlight. It supports I2C communication with your micro-controller, so pins are provided for data exchange and backlight control shrinks from ~10 to 2, relieving IOs for other challenging tasks; moreover, it is also able to display English and Japanese fonts which are very convenient for the user. Grove – 16 x 2 LCD (White on Blue) is ready to use with micro-controllers as a digital input. This product also has a compact modular design Plug-and-play grove compatible interface. In the picture below, the grove shield for Arduino is stacked with Seeeduino V4.2. You can also use the shield with Arduino.
Applications of this LCD include temperature display, time display, and any project that requires a simple display. Supported platforms are Arduino, Raspberry Pi, BeagleBone, Wio, and LinkIt ONE. For all Grove users (especially beginners), Seeed Studio provides guidance PDF documents. Please download and read through Preface – Getting Started and Introduction to Grove before using the product. This is a suitable product for not only Grove users but also all electronic enthusiasts. So, buy now!
I2C Pull-Up Resistor
The first version of Grove – 16 x 2 LCD series does not have a built-in pull-up resistor, nor does it provide a pad to solder the optional pull-up resistor. Seeed Studio has redesigned the module, and the new version has built-in pull-up resistors. If you have an older version on your hand, you can solder a 10kΩ DIP resistor yourself on the back pad of the Grove connector. Please follow the picture below for version 1.0. Solder a 10kΩ DIP resistor between VCC and SCL pins. Also, solder another 10kΩ DIP resistor between VCC and SDA pins.
