20×4 Character LCD


20×4 Character LCD


SKU: LCD-001 - Mfg Part Number: QC2004A


When the 16×2 Character LCD just doesn't have enough space step up to the 20×4 Character LCD! 4 lines and 20 characters per line for those really long messages! This basic version does not include the 0.100″ header or the trimmer potentiometer.

For those looking to avoid using 6 digital pins, we carry an excellent Character Backpack by Adafruit Industries that allows a character display to operate over I2C or SPI!


  • 20 characters wide, 4 rows
  • Connection port is 0.1″ pitch, single row for easy breadboarding and wiring
  • Can be fully controlled with 6 digital pins
  • Built in character set supports English/Japanese text
  • White text on blue background
  • Single LED backlight included can be dimmed easily with a resistor or PWM
  • Up to 8 extra characters can be created for custom glyphs or 'foreign' language support
