Adafruit Blue & White 16x2 LCD + Keypad Kit For Raspberry Pi

This new Adafruit Pi plate makes it easy to use a blue and white 16x2 character LCD . Unfortunately, these LCDs do require quite a few digital pins. 6 to control the LCD and then another 1 to control the backlight for a total of 7 pins. That's nearly all the GPIO available on a Pi. With this in mind, we wanted to make it easier for people to get these LCD into their projects so Adafruit devised a Pi plate that lets you control a 16x2 character LCD, up to 3 backlight pins & 5 keypad pins using only the two I2C pins on the R-Pi. The best part is you don't really lose those two pins either, since you can stick i2c-based sensors, RTCs, etc. and have them share the i2c bus. This is a super slick way to add a display without all the wiring hassle.

WARNING: If you're using the new Raspberry Pi model B+ with 4 USB ports you will need to take some extra steps to ensure the backlight resistor elads do not touch the USB ports and short out. Refer to Assembly link at resources, below, for more details.
