The LCD2S-204FHA is a Serial LCD Character Display Module with a high speed
SPI/I2C serial bus. The LCD display is a 4x20 character FSTN black display with a amber LED backlight, and is RoHS compliant. For convenience the I2C and SPI signals are available via a Micro Match type connector, and a
standard 2.54mm, 2x5 row pin header. Most new Modtronix SBC boards have Micro Match connectors, and
can be connected to the LCD2S-204FHA. The
Micro Match connector can be used to create a cable to connect the
LCD2S-204FHA and SBC boards together. Or, our
Micro Match cables can be use.
