In a blog post coming later today or at the very latest on Monday I’ll be writing about displaying content and custom characters on a LCD Panel/LCD Keypad Shield.

As part of that upcoming blog post I’m announcing a Custom Character Generator for LCD Panels.

You can play around with it here.


The LCD Character Generator (LCDCHARGEN) is a custom character generator to use with LCD Panels and/or LCD Shields.

This has been tested to work with the LCD Keypad Shield For Arduino by DFRobot.

Other 16x2 LCD Panels/Shields should also work.

This was originally developed by Omerk Kilic but now is powered by my fork located here.
