Standard LCD 16x2 + extras (white on blue)
Standard HD44780 LCDs are useful for creating standalone projects.
16 characters wide, 2 rows
White text on blue background
Connection port is 0.1" pitch, single row for easy breadboarding and wiring
Pins are documented on the back of the LCD to assist in wiring it up
Single LED backlight included can be dimmed easily with a resistor or PWM and uses much less power than LCD with EL (electroluminescent) backlights
Can be fully controlled with only 6 digital lines! (Any analog/digital pins can be used)
Built in character set supports English/Japanese text, see the HD44780 datasheet for the full character set
Up to 8 extra characters can be created for custom glyphs or 'foreign' language support
Comes with necessary contrast potentiometer and strip of header

We have a datasheet that has dimensions and pin-locations and then a HD44780 datasheet with the detailed commands for control
Screen Dimensions: 24mm x 69mm / 0.9" x 2.7"
