Raspberry Pi fans can now easily add a display to their devices thanks to three new Adafruit Pi Plate kits, which are available at leading electronics distributor Newark element14 (Chicago, IL). The kits:
- Enable a display to be added to the Raspberry Pi without the usual wiring difficulties.
- Control a 16 x 2 Character LCD using only the 2 I2C pins on the Raspberry Pi, and I2C-based sensors and RTS can also share the same bus.
- Include a blue & white monochrome LCD, or a RGB Negative LCD or a Positive LCD.
- Feature a new tiny Adafruit breadboard, which makes it easy to create prototypes using the Pi.
