Introduction

This is another great LCD display compatible with Gadgeteer modules from DFRobot. With limited pin resources, your project will quicly run out of resources using normal LCDs. With this I2C interface LCD module, you only need 2 lines (I2C)to display the information.If you already have I2C devices in your project, this LCD module actually cost no more resources at all. The adress can be set from 0x20-0x27.Fantastic for Arduino or gadgeteer based projects.

#include <Wire.h>
#include <LiquidCrystal_I2C.h>

#if defined(ARDUINO) && ARDUINO >= 100
#define printByte(args)  write(args);

#define printByte(args)  print(args,BYTE);
#endif

LiquidCrystal_I2C lcd(0x27,16,2);  // set the LCD address to 0x27 for a 16 chars and 2 line display

void setup(){

  lcd.init();                      // initialize the lcd
  lcd.backlight();

  lcd.home();

  lcd.print("Hello world...");
  lcd.setCursor(0, 1);
  lcd.print("dfrobot.com");

}

int backlightState = LOW;
long previousMillis = 0;
long interval = 1000;

void loop(){

  unsigned long currentMillis = millis();

  if(currentMillis - previousMillis > interval) {
    previousMillis = currentMillis;

    if (backlightState == LOW)
      backlightState = HIGH;
    else
      backlightState = LOW;

    if(backlightState == HIGH)  lcd.backlight();
    else lcd.noBacklight();
  }
}
