This page is dedicated to the Pi-LCD.
The Pi-LCD board allows most common 16×2 LCD modules, including the newer full colour RGB backlit variants to be easily connected to a Raspberry Pi. The board includes 3 buffered drive circuits allowing full control of mono and colour RGB back-lights, together with 3 monetary push switches and connection points for 1-wire and I2C interfaces.
The Pi-LCD can be used in a number of ways, but particularly to speed up development of Pi projects needing an LCD display as it saves the need to focus on the display element.

Download – Demo software and hardware interface information
[ Note this is no longer an active project, demo software / instructions have not been tested against current RPI operating system or latest h/w. That said most things should still work as there is nothing too clever here ! – if you do have a problem get in touch and I will try to help ]
