i2c / SPI Character LCD Backpack


i2c / SPI Character LCD Backpack


SKU: LCD-005 - Mfg Part Number: 292


All Character LCDs are common and easy to use, but when connecting them to your microcontroller they can use up most of your digital pins! The i2c / SPI character LCD backpack is designed to reduce the number of pins required by your microcontroller to drive a Character LCD screen. Simply solder this backpack to the Character LCD of your choice and connect it via i2c or SPI.

This backpack will work with any 'standard' character LCD, from 8×1 to 20×4 sizes, as long as they have a 16-pin single-line connection header at the top. As usual, Adafruit provides easy to use libraries for the Arduino and Circuit Python along with in-depth tutorials!

Please Note: Character LCD sold separately.


  • Works with LCDs from 8×1 to 20×4
  • Only 2 pins are needed for i2c
