Introduction

This is a very popular LCD Keypad shield for Arduino or Freeduino board. It includes a 2x16 LCD display and 6 momentary push buttons. Pins 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10 are used to interface with the LCD. Analog Pin 0 is used to read the pushbuttons. The LCD shield supports contrast adjustment and backlit on/off functions. It also expands analog pins for easy analog sensor reading and display.

Specification

  • Operating Voltage:5V
  • 6 Push buttons
  • Expanded Analog Pinout with  standard DFRobot configuration

    Like the shield and works great for static text. Not so good when scrolling text as this is quite slow and leave tome "ghost characters" that take a while to disappear. (Posted on 23/08/2016)

    A neat shield for Arduino! Does the job, and there are LOADS of example sketches on the net for similar shields. Just modify the pin outs as necessary. (Posted on 25/05/2016)

    These little guys are brilliant to work with. The quality is excellent and it is well worth the money. I do love the way they have given you very clear analogue inputs on top of the keypad. Real value for money. Just one thing to note that the resources on the net are a bit on the light side. Some of the English in the manuals can be a little funny the one DFRobot had a friendship reminder in. Very happy with this and will recommend it.

    I don't have much experience yet with Arduinos. Getting this display meant I needed to use a library for the first time. Once I had established that the pin assignments for this display are different to the ones in the Arduino library, all worked beautifully.

    In the library examples you need to edit the following line:
    LiquidCrystal lcd(12, 11, 5, 4, 3, 2);
    to
    LiquidCrystal lcd(8, 9, 4, 5, 6, 7); (Posted on 17/08/2013)
