Grove – 16X2 LCD RGB Backlight is a full-color backlight 16×2 LCD for Arduino. High contrast and ease of use make it a perfect I2C LCD for Arduino and Raspberry Pi.
The traditional 16×2 LCD requires up to 10 I/O pins to display, and the 16×2 LCD with RGB backlight requires an extra three pins to control the backlight color. This will take up many I/O pins on the main control board, especially for development boards with less I/O resources such as Arduino and Raspberry Pi. Grove – LCD RGB Backlight makes it different! With the Grove I2C connector’s help, only two signal pins and two power pins are needed. You don’t even need to care about how to connect these pins. Just plug it into the I2C interface on Seeeduino or Arduino/Raspberry Pi+baseshield via the Grove cable. No complicated wiring, no soldering, no need to worry about burning the LCD caused by the wrong current limiting resistor. Easy peasy.
What’s more, this LCD module is not only a character LCD but also can display your DIY images, such as a heart and a smiling face. 16×2 means two lines, and each line has 16 columns, 32 characters in total. Each name contains 5*8 pixels.
As the name RGB backlight indicates, you can set any color you like to be the backlight. You can also have the backlight change with the program, such as using a green backlight when displaying a smile and turning the backlight to red when the angry face appears. Well, if you don’t need a colorful backlight, you can choose our monochrome LCD series. They also use the easy-to-use Grove I2C interface and are more cost-effective.
