HD44780 2×16 Dot Matrix LCD

Bought this at Ebay for only RM10 including shipping. This came all the way from China, hence why it is so cheap. Took around two weeks to arrive and here it is.

Apparently a paper box is too costly but thank God it arrived in one piece.

The connector shown does not come with the LCD, I bought it separately so that I can solder it and use the LCD on a breadboard.

Here is the back of the LCD.

Usually this LCD is used with a microcontroller but it can also be used on a computer. So, I tested the LCD by connecting it to the computer and it works perfectly.

I will cover on how to use this LCD on a computer in the next post.
