ROCK64 and 16x2 LCD Screen
#1
I am new to the ROCK64 and want to put a 16x2 LCD screen on it to display statuses.  Has anyone used one that they can send me a link to for purchase or have any hints on one that may work?

Thanks in advance!

John

Any LCD such as the following should work, they are driven by I2C bus, therefore Python I2C Library or others can be used to send display information.

I was thinking about something similar but with a 4*20LCD Smile
I found this link (for raspberry) but it maybe could help you? Wink

Did you complete it? Is it working? I'm trying to do the same thing but I have little experience with GPIO.

Hi!! I just purchased a ROCK64 and I'd like to know this little friend. Can you provide schematics or further info about what you've done? I'm aiming to get a 20x4 screen with the I2C module (from my Arduino UNO) to show IP Address, CPU Temp, etc.

Best regards from Argentina.
