16x2 Character LCD Display - Black on Yellow/Green 5V
This LCD is also available in a
non-backlit version (#27976).
This display provides basic text wrapping so that your text looks right. You have full control over all of its advanced LCD features, allowing you to move the cursor anywhere on the display with a single instruction and turn the display on and off in any configuration. It directly supports ASCII Dec 32-127, the same visible characters as the BASIC Stamp Editor's Debug Terminal. In addition, you may define up to eight of your own custom characters to display anywhere on the LCD.
This display and many applications and programming examples are featured in our
Smart Sensors and Applications Parts & Text Kit (#28029).
This device can be connected to a PC serial port using a MAX232 line driver. The circuit isn't supported by Parallax, but it's possible to make this connection with a few dollars of parts.
