I2C_LCD is an easy-to-use display module, It can make display easier. Using it can reduce the difficulty of make, so that makers can focus on the core of the work.
We developed the Arduino library for I2C_LCD, user just need a few lines of the code can achieve complex graphics and text display features. It can replace the serial monitor of Arduino in some place, you can get running informations without a computer.
More than that, we also develop the dedicated picture data convert software (bitmap converter)now is available to support PC platform of windows, Linux, Mac OS. Through the bitmap convert software you can get your favorite picture displayed on I2C_LCD, without the need for complex programming.
I2C_LCD can provide you with a very convenient way of make. Enjoy yourself!

Step 1: Install the latest version of Arduino IDE to your computer.
Step 2: Download and install the I2C_LCD library to Arduino IDE:
Open Arduino IDE, click Sketch -> Include library -> Add .ZIP library.
Find and select the I2C_LCD.zip file you just downloaded.
Restart the Arduino IDE.
Step 3: Chose the example project which you like. (Take “HelloWorld” project for example here.)
Click File > Examples > I2C_LCD > HelloWorld
Step 4: Connect I2C_LCD to your Seeeduino Vx board with Grove cable. Then connect Seeeduino Vx board to your computer.
Step 5: Select your board and serial port.
Select the board: Click Tools > Board > “Arduino Duemilanove or Diecimila”(Seeeduino V3.0 Or early version), “Arduino Uno”(Seeeduino Lotus or Seeeduino V4.0).
Select the COM: Click Tools -> Serial Port -> COMX(which connected with your board.)
Step 6: Upload the program and enjoy yourself!

The platforms mentioned above as supported is/are an indication of the module's hardware or theoritical compatibility. We only provide software library or code examples for Arduino platform in most cases. It is not possible to provide software library / demo code for all possible MCU platforms. Hence, users have to write their own software library.
Help us make it better
Thank you for choosing Seeed. A couple of months ago we initiated a project to improve our documentation system. What you are looking at now is the first edition of the new documentation system. Comparing to the old one, here is the progresses that we made:
- Replaced the old documentation system with a new one that was developed from Mkdocs, a more widely used and cooler tool to develop documentation system.
- Integrated the documentation system with our official website, now you can go to Bazaar and other section like Forum and Community more conveniently.
- Reviewed and rewrote documents for hundreds of products for the system’s first edition, and will continue migrate documents from old wiki to the new one.
An easy-to-use instruction is as important as the product itself. We are expecting this new system will improve your experience when using Seeed’s products. However since this is the first edition, there are still many things need to improve, if you have any suggestions or findings, you are most welcome to submit the amended version as our contributor or give us suggestions in the survey below, Please don’t forget to leave your email address so that we can reply.
