16x2 I2C LCD Part


#1

Very new to Fritzing so be gentle.

I’ve had a look about and either I’ve lost the plot and its staring me in the face or its not in the standard parts bin. But, is there a 16x2 LCD that is I2C rather than the wirefest that is the standard 16x2 LCD? Or do I need to create a part / use an I2C module

Thanks

googleing for Fritzing 1602 lcd i2c part (or ritzing 1602 lcd i2c part as I actually did :slight_smile: ) turns up:

http://fritzing.org/projects/lcd-i2c-analog-inputoutput-displayed

which from only a look at the description appears to include one of the i2c converter boards.

That’s the one I found too Peter. I think I’ll make life easier and leave a header on the board rather than trying to wire it all in until I can work out how to produce a proper part.

Thanks

I’m struggling with the create a part issue right now (or more correctly will be again once I finish a different task) so perhaps I’ll have some pointers, as it isn’t at all easy and all the docs I’ve found are not very good (they tend to leave out a lot of vital details).
