LCD Front Panel Set:

2x16 LCD w/HD44780 controller, 4 push buttons, 3 LEDs and a 2x12 pin header.

L.C.D. Front Panel Set: 2x16 L.C.D. w/HD44780 controller, 4 push buttons, 3 LEDs and a 2x12 pin header.

Pete says: "Your 2x16 LCD panel is hot! Any chance you have a 4x24 unit in the works?" James Newton answers Sorry, no. These are one of a kind, overstock items that will no longer be available when the existing stock runs out. I can't begin to make such an item for this price.

juanmarod says: "Thank you. Very good Displays. Every think ok. I put you a positive feedbak on Ebay."

John Muchow says: "James, I just received my order of three LCD Front Panels, thanks for the great service! I'm looking forward to getting my PICs hooked up to them. :-)"

Tom Lackamp says: "I spread the module's pins out at a 45 degree angle, then took the last .200 or .250 inch and formed them back to the vertical so I could plug them into the breadboard using .300 spacing." Toms modification allows the LCD module to be used with a standard "whiteboard" breadboarding system. Since the connector pins are quite long, even after being bent, they seat into the breadboard firmly.

Bud Justen points out that an old IDE or other 2x12 or better cable will plug right into the header and provided some nice instructions and code for using it with the popular Arduino. Richard Cooke provided a sample project with the PICAXE BASIC system and an ADC test circuit.

Measurements in millimeters and inches.
