The SerLCD v2.5 module is the latest serial LCD module from Spark Fun Electronics that incorporates many new features. The SerLCD backpack takes care of all the HD44780 commands allowing seamless integration with any micro that can communicate over a wide range of TTL serial baud rates. The SerLCD v2.5 has the ability to drive up to 1A directly for backlight control or as a general purpose high-power control pin.
SerLCD v2.5 currently supports 16 and 20 character wide screens with 2 or 4 lines of display. Contrast control is implemented through a trim pot on the module. Comes with 3-pin screw terminal shown on right.
