Raspberry Pi & Maker goodies
Curated range of best of breed products.
This is the lovely little 16 x 3 character LCD we use on Display-O-Tron.
A super-slim alternative to the classic industrial character displays. This model has a transparent display allowing you to add your own back-light if you wish!
It supports SPI, 4-bit, and 8-bit addressing (you can talk to it just like a HD44780 display) making it easy to use with many micro-controllers or platforms (such as Raspberry Pi). It supports both 3V3 (though you'll need a couple of 1uF capacitors) and 5V operation.
Please note: If you want to drive this display at 3V3 you will need a couple of 1uF capacitors for the charge pump.
The datasheet contains sample wiring diagrams (see page 4) for all modes of operation - it's actually really darn helpful! View the full datasheet.
