The Alphanumeric LCD Kit for Arduino using only one component, and of course the LCD, provide the Arduino board with at least a 16×2 alphanumeric LCD display and can be used in a lot of your projects.
This display consumes only three I/O Arduino pins, no matter what you decide to use. An alphanumeric LCD display gives to your Arduino project a lot of possibilities and can be extremely useful also if you use if as a debug tool as an alternative to the serial connection.
For detailed instructions on how-to assemble the kit check on Instructables.com
Also read the two-parts articles on electroschematics.com: Alphanumeric LCD with Shift Register on Arduino – part 1 and Alphanumeric LCD with Shift Register on Arduino – part 2
This kit is compatible with any micro controller board supporting the SPI protocol. The kit is easy to integrate in your projects, while the Shift LCD Library consumes few memory of the board.
To use the LCD kit in your sketches with the last versione of the Arduino IDE you need to install the SHIFT LCD library fixed, available on GitHub

We recognize our top users by making them a Tindarian. Tindarians have access to secret & unreleased features.
We look for the most active & best members of the Tindie community, and invite them to join. There isn't a selection process or form to fill out. The only way to become a Tindarian is by being a nice & active member of the Tindie community!
I developed software and firmware for embedded devices, Android, Mac and Linux. I frequently rethink projects or create new ones in order to make products and prototypes market-affordable and as cheap as possible without compromising quality.
Who is Balearic Dynamics ...
FROM PRINTERS TO CIRCUITS
About five years ago I created the IbizaSocialPrinters brand, supporting the marketing for the hardware and software development of the first Bluetooth POS printer driver for Android. Then, things grew up and I was involved in wider and more complex projects.
Most of these projects needed software and hardware development. To make things faster the better way was to be able to manage the entire prototyping process in-home, reducing the waiting time almost to zero. When I started making the circuits and small mechanical parts together with circuit design, PCB layout, microcontroller firmware, and application software the new brand "Balearic Dynamics" came to life.
THE NEW BRAND
If you loved the "Fringe" series, you will sure remember the "Massive Dynamics" big company, that inspired the idea for the logo. The name for the new brand was still in doubt. Around the middle of December 2013, the news spread that "Google acquired the robotics company Boston Dynamics" So, why not creating the Balearic Dynamics as well?
THE SIMPLIFICATION PROCESS
I frequently see that many makers, creators, inventors, hobbyists and so on approach electronic engineering in a very simple and less efficient way. What the market offers is a great number of DIY projects that in fact have very few chances to be used in the real world. In brief, the approach is bottom-top.
When things become more complex they fail, just because omitting apparently useless components makes things simple but not in the correct sense.
On the contrary, developing some complex architecture, some circuits parts can be shared among many projects. That is, our Arduino compatible kits: tools we already use as part of our projects now transformed in independent open-hardware modules for the customers.
This is also why - following the Open Source and Creative Commons philosophy - these projects are sold at a very reasonable price, full documented and explained.
I appreciate very much the opportunity to publish the entire project of every product on the popular on-line magazine electroschematics.com and, of course, on the main site www.balearidcynamics.com
