16×2-LCD Module (Green) – India
The 16×2 LCD display module which is very commonly used in various circuits which require text or numerical feedback. It can display 16 characters in 2 lines each. Each character is displayed in a 5×7 pixel matrix. It has a Backlight which can be switched on and off. The contrast of the screen can also be controlled by using a potentiometer. Easy interface with Arduino and other microcontrollers.

The 16×2 LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) can display a total of 32 characters in two rows at once. The 16×2-LCD Module could be easily interfaced with Arduino, Raspberry Pi, and other microcontroller boards. If you use it with Arduinos you will be able to find a number of libraries in the public domain. The 16×2-LCD Module is very famous among students in India.
The LCD can work in namely two modes: 4-bit and 8-bit. In 4 bit mode, data is sent nibble by nibble, first the upper nibble and then the lower nibble. In 8-bit mode, 8 bits of data are sent directly at once. You might be wondering that why to use the 4-bit mode if we can send the complete data at once with an 8-bit mode. The main reason for this is that, if you use the 8-bit mode you need to utilize microcontroller’s 8 digital i/o pins for that! So if you are working with a microcontroller board that has very fewer pins, e.g., an Arduino Nano, utilizing the 8-bit mode will render you with no pins left to perform other tasks. So in these cases, a 4-bit mode is always preferred.
Pin Configuration of 16×2-LCD Module
|Pin No:||Pin Name:||Description|
|1||Vss (Ground)||Ground pin connected to system ground|
|2||Vdd (+5 Volt)||Powers the LCD with +5V (4.7V – 5.3V)|
|3||VE (Contrast V)||Decides the contrast level of display. Grounded to get maximum contrast.|
|4||Register Select||Connected to Microcontroller to shift between command/data register|
|5||Read/Write||Used to read or write data. Normally grounded to write data to LCD|
|6||Enable||Connected to Microcontroller Pin and toggled between 1 and 0 for data acknowledgment|
|7||Data Pin 0||Data pins 0 to 7 form an 8-bit data line. They can be connected to Microcontroller to send 8-bit data.
These LCDs can also operate on the 4-bit mode in such case Data pin 4,5,6 and 7 will be left free.
|8||Data Pin 1|
|9||Data Pin 2|
|10||Data Pin 3|
|11||Data Pin 4|
|12||Data Pin 5|
|13||Data Pin 6|
|14||Data Pin 7|
|15||LED Positive||Backlight LED pin positive terminal|
|16||LED Negative||Backlight LED pin negative terminal|
