8x2 character LCD (parallel interface)


This compact 8 x 2 LCD is great for small microcontroller projects where you want more than just a blinking LED for feedback. This unit uses the standard HD44780 parallel interface.


This little 8-character, 2-line parallel liquid crystal display is a generic equivalent of the Optrex DMC-50448N-AAE-AD LCD and is used as the displays for Pololu Orangutan and Orangutan LV-168 robot controllers. It uses the common HD44780 interface, so sample interface code is widely available for a variety of microcontrollers. This is the smallest package we know of for this familiar interface.

You can find sample HD44780 LCD interface code written for Atmel’s ATmega644 AVR microcontroller on Orangutan X2’s resources page. Sample code for Atmel’s ATmega168 can be found as part of the open-source Orangutan-lib package, or on Orangutan LV-168’s resources page.



Overall dimensions: 40 mm x 35 mm x 7 mm (1.57" x 1.38" x 0.28")


Note: our pictures show pins soldered to the LCD PCB, but this item ships without pins (the pads are standard 0.1" spacing).
