Lcd 16x 2 st7066u


I`m looking at ordering a red/black LCD for my next Shruthi build.
I have found some that say they are ST7066U – is this an equivalent spec to HD47780 and will they work?

Many Thanks

it sounds somewhat familiar but really not sure. can you post a link?

A very quick Google search tells me that they are supposed to be pin compatible to HD47780 …

Heres the link

Datasheets are the same - il give it a go and post with the results.


Can’t see why it shouldn’t work… ^^

These are the same parts as Sparkfun, I’ve already bought from them and they worked fine!

Thanks to all - fitted and working
