LCD1602 16×2 Blue LCD is a character-type liquid crystal display that is a kind of dot matrix module that shows letters, numbers, characters, etc. It’s composed of 5×7 or 5×11 dot matrix positions; each position can display one character. There’s a dot pitch between two characters and a space between lines, thus separating characters and lines.

These displays are straightforward to use and are a great way to provide a user interface on many projects where you need more info than simple LED indicators or 7-Segment displays can provide since these are full alphanumeric displays with two lines of 16 characters each for a total of 32 characters.

For an interactive display, pairing this type of display with a rotary encoder to navigate and select menu items on display can provide an amicable user interface.
