LCD RGB i2C 16x2 Plus Keypad Pre-assembled
for Raspberry Pi


This Pi Plate makes it easy to use a blue, red, green, magenta, yellow, Cyan and white 16x2 Character LCD.

Similar to the Adafruit models

Just plug it onto your Raspberry Pi and use it.


We really like the 16x2 Character LCDs we stock in the shop.

This LCD shield makes it easier for people to get these LCD into their projects using a Pi plate that lets you control a 16x2 Character LCD, up to 3 backlight pins AND 5 keypad pins using only the two I2C pins on the R-Pi! The best part is you don't really lose those two pins either, since you can stick i2c-based sensors, RTCs, etc and have them share the I2C bus. This is a super slick way to add a display without all the wiring hassle. 

New, this item is an updated Pi plate with the buttons on on the right side, which makes it a little more mechanically stable 

This pi plate is perfect for when you want to build a stand-alone project with its own user interface. The 4 directional buttons plus select button allows basic control without having to attach a bulky computer. 

The plate is designed for both Revision 1 and Revision 2 Raspberry Pi's and theModel B+. For Pi Model B+, the resistors sit right above the new set of USB ports. To keep them from shorting against the metal, a piece of electrical tape must be placed onto the USB ports.

It uses the I2C (SDA/SCL) pins. We have a special xtra-tall 26-pin header so the plate sits above the USB and Ethernet jacks. 

Included is a high quality PCB and all the components (buttons, header etc) and a 16x2 Character RGB LCD is included! Assembled and Tested for you.

There is also have some handy Python code to help you easily talk to the LCD and buttons You can also easily query the 5 keypad buttons to get input through the library, so you get extra buttons without using any more pins. The buttons are automatically de-bounced inside the library. 
NB: This product may be supplied with slightly different switch types.
