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
