RGB Backlight Negative LCD 16x2 + Extras - RGB on Black . This is a fancy upgrade to standard 16x2 LCDs, instead of just having blue and white, or red and black, this LCD has full color RGB characters on a dark/black background! That means you can change the character display colors to anything you want - red, green, blue, pink, white, purple yellow, teal, salmon, chartreuse. This LCD looks strikingly good in person.

We had these custom made to our specification so that you can use them in existing LCD projects and they'll still work - just that only the red LED will be used (so it will appear red-on-black). The extra two pins (17 and 18) are for the green and blue LEDs. The LCD has resistors on board already so that you can drive it with 5V logic and the current draw will be ~20mA per LED. There's a single LED backlight for the entire display, the image above showing 3 colors at once is a composite!

Comes with a single 16x2 RGB backlight LCD, 10K necessary contrast potentiometer and strip of header.

16 characters wide, 2 rows Black text on multi-color background Connection port is 0.1" pitch, single row for easy breadboarding and wiring Pins are documented on the back of the LCD to assist in wiring it up Single RGB LED backlight included can be dimmed easily with a resistor or PWM and uses much less power than LCD with EL (electroluminescent) backlights Can be fully controlled with only 6 digital lines! (Any analog/digital pins can be used) and 3 PWM pins for the backlight Built in character set supports English/Japanese text, see the HD44780 datasheet for the full character set Up to 8 extra characters can be created for custom glyphs or 'foreign' language support Comes with 10K necessary contrast potentiometer and strip of header

Because these were custom made, we don't have a full datasheet, however, the dimensions and pins should match this diagram and the controller will be a HD44780-compatible, see the HD44780 datasheet with the detailed commands for control
