Do you need an easy to use interface for your LCD screen? The LCD Button Shield V2 attaches to your Arduino to provide a 16x2, black character, green back light LCD with a keypad consisting of 5 keys — select, up, right, down and left. With this shield you will be able to move through menus and make selections straight from one board attached to your Arduino without requiring a massive tower of shields.

The LCD Button Shield V2 works perfectly in 4-bit mode with the “LiquidCrystal” library found in the Arduino IDE, using this library will allow you to control the LCD with only 6 digital I/O lines. Version 2 of this shield provides you with the capability of pushing multiple buttons at once and combining the results. No longer will you be restrained to only 5 inputs, now you have the ability to make use of 32 different button combinations!

Note: Headers are included with this shield but not soldered on.
