Paring the Adafruit 20x4 LCD & the i2c / SPI character LCD b

by starchjon on Wed Mar 17, 2021 8:04 am

I need a 20x4 LCD Display that can be used on a I2C bus.
I have not been able to find a Adafruit IIC 20x4 LCD product offering.
I do see Adafruit has an I2C LCD 'backpack' that is to be used on their 16x2 LCD Display
My question is: Can this I2C /SPI Character LCD Backpack be used on the 20x4 LCD, and if so, where would a tutorial be found?
Regards,
jS

Yes, you can use any HD44780 compatible LCD. That includes most 20x4 LCD character displays.

The tutorial is here: https://learn.adafruit.com/i2c-spi-lcd- ... k/overview
