More Details

This character LCD module is a passive matrix LCD available in FSTN or STN panels. With 4 rows of 16 characters, this LCD model offers more space to display important information clearly and concisely. It is better than a 16×2 characters LCD.


These LCD modules are available in parallel 4-bit or 8-bit modes. Then, engineers can quickly get the datasheet and sample code. So they can use them in any Arduino or Raspberry Pi project.

The KS0066 or an equivalent IC provides stable and reliable performance.

Their compact and durable COB design is ideal for space-limited applications.

They offer multiple LED backlight color options (Blue/Green/Yellow-Green/Grey/Red/White) with optional positive or negative displays. That will match different design needs.

These character displays also have a wide operating temperature range of -20 to +70°C. You can use a power supply of 3.3V or 5V.


Uses and Applications

This 16×4 LCD display can show numbers and simple text. So you can use them in various industrial, medical, and consumer electronics products.

  • Electronic devices, like calculators and digital clocks, use it to show information.
  • With it, industrial control panels can display critical information about the operation of machinery or processes.
  • Medical devices use this character LCD to display vital signs, test results, or medication instructions.
  • Some low-end portable music players use it as their display part.

Overall, character LCDs are a cost-effective and reliable solution for displaying simple information in many applications.
