    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
