DOIT ESP8285 DevKit | 16x2 I2C LCD Display | Tutorial & Project

DOIT ESP8285 DevKit is a microprocessor-based development board developed by DOIT.am. It contains ESP-M2 Wi-Fi Module, which integrates an ESP8285 Wi-Fi System-on-a-Chip (SoC). DOIT ESP8285 DevKit supports Two Wire Interface or I2C communication by using the Wire library.

16x2 I2C LCD Display can able to display 16x2 characters on 2 rows. It has a Hitachi HD44780 LCD controller chip. 16x2 I2C LCD Display uses a I2C module, which contains an NXP PCF8574T chip. The chip provides general purpose remote input/output expansion via the Two Wire bidirectional I2C bus. We can control the backlight of the LCD Display by the on-board jumper and can also adjust contrast of the LCD Display by the on-board potentiometer. This 16x2 I2C LCD Display has a default I2C address of 0x27.
