This shield is designed for 5V Arduino boards that use the standard Arduino header layout such as the Uno, Leonardo, Mega, etc.
It is compatible with the standard Arduino LiquidCrystal library which is built into the Arduino development environment.
The shield includes a 16 character by 2 line LCD display with exceptionally clear white text on a blue backlit background.
Contrast can be adjusted by means of a multi-turn potentiometer.
Six miniature push buttons (SELECT, LEFT, RIGHT, UP, DOWN & RST) provide a user input and only require one input pin to monitored their state.
Additional interfaces include an ICSP header which can also double as an SPI interface and pads are provided to allow extra optional headers to be added.
Please note: This shield is designed for 5V Arduino boards such as the Uno, Leonardo, Mega, etc. It is not compatible with 3V Arduino boards.
Due to the way the backlight circuit works do not manually configure digital pin 10 as an high output when this shield is connected.
