The picture shows the board (red) fitted to a standard 16 character by 2 lines LCD display. Such displays operate using the standard Hitachi-Densitron interface method. We offer an Arduino-compatible software driver in our downloads section. The driver allows control of the LCD backlight….so you can turn it on/off and flash it at will. It has a preset control to set contrast, and can run at a much faster SPI rate than other such products (10MHz max) It has jumpers to set the SPI address, allowing a maximum of 4 displays to be run from the SPI bus (though we have no idea why you would want to do that). It has a small power-on LED.
