This little 8-character, 2-line parallel liquid crystal display is a generic equivalent of the Optrex DMC-50448N-AAE-AD LCD.

It is incorporated into some versions of our Zumo 32U4 and 3pi robots.

You can find sample HD44780 LCD interface code written for a variety of AVR microcontrollers as part of the Pololu AVR library. If you are using an Arduino board, you can get started with Arduino’s LiquidCrystal library.\
