This LCD backpack iis an "add-on circuit" that reduces the number of pins needed to connect an LCD. By using simple i2c and SPI input/output expanders we have reduced the number of pins (only 2 pins are needed for i2c) while still making it easy to interface with the LCD. The breakout comes with a 2-pin and 3-pin terminal block as shown. This backpack will work with any 'standard' character LCD, from 8x1 to 40x4 sizes! As long as they have a 16-pin single-line connection header at the top.
