128x64 LCD 'Front Pack' with rotary input control
This is an I2C device that can be used as a user interface to a microcontroller with I2C, that is nearly all of them. There are libraries for the ByPic, Arduino and Raspberry Pi in the link below.
There is a 5V and 3.3V I2C interface. The display will work with either 5V or 3.3V
The display has 3 built in fonts and can render 8 lines of 21 characters in font 1 giving a useful amount of information. The input uses a rotary encoder which is much better than buttons particularly if there is a lot of information. The encoder has a switch and also there is a spare button.
The display can also render static images.
The whole assembly is quite thin approximately 5mm
If used in a project box it leaves plenty of room for other equipment.
This is an example of it in a 3D printed box (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2158806) but could just as easily be mounted as a font panel (NOT SUPPLIED)
Data sheet and resources With examples for the Rpi, Arduino and ByPic
Ideal for CNC front end, Stepper motor tester, home IT control, I/O for Raspberry Pi for TV, media player, Radio etc.
- Display 128x64 with white back light - software dimmable
- Software adjustable contrast
- Voltage 5V or 3.3V - will work on 3.3V for the Raspberry Pi
- Three built in fonts
- Free image converter for displaying graphics
- User selectable I2C address
- 24 step rotary encoder with push switch
- Push button
- 16mA with BL on, 8.4mA sleep mode
- Thickness is determined by the height of the connector which is about 10mm total
You are purchasing the BV4212 which is a PCB, LCD, rotary control and firmware to make it all work with I2C
