New in the Maker Shed: LCD Shield for Arduino

Get your LCD display off the breadboard and onto your Arduino! The LCD Shield Kit from the Maker Shed provides a simple, inexpensive way to mount and use your LCD. It is compatible with all Arduino compatible 16 pin or 2 x 8 pin modules and works perfectly with the ‘LiquidCrystal’ Arduino library. You can even mount up to 3 buttons for use as inputs. This shield was designed to work with the 16×2 LCD and the LCD included in the Ultimate Microcontroller Pack. (Note: LCD and Arduino not included.)

  • Works with ALL 16 pin straight line and 2×8 pin LCDs
  • Includes Headers
  • Includes space for 3 additional buttons on the PCB, allowing use as an IO shield.

I am the Evangelist for the Maker Shed. It seems that there is no limit to my making interests. I'm a tinkerer at heart and have a passion for solving problems and figuring out how things work. When not working for Make I can be found falling off my unicycle, running in adverse weather conditions, skiing down the nearest hill, restoring vintage motorcycles, or working on my car.
