In this instructable i will help you make a LCD 16x2 module with backlight for to connect any of your microcontroller project in 4 bit mode :)
Step 1: Component Parts:
The basic parts only you need:
-LCD 16X2 WITH BACKLIGHT (1602A).
-Resistor for backlight (You can choose from 100 ohms to 1 k ohm for a vcc supply of 5 volts).
-10k ohm trimpot for contrast adjust
-1 line of 8 male headers especially with an angle of 90° (L).
-1 line of 16 female headers.
-8.5 x 4.4 cm cooper tablet for electronic circuits
-Ferric clorure for etching
Step 2: Files Ready to Print!
Download the files and print it!
Tranfer to a coopper table for electronics and make it!
solder all the components!
Step 3: PCB Look Like...
Here is some of representative imagen you can do connections more easily and cheaper than buy a lcd module!
