Pololu 8x2 parallel LCD to Arduino

I just received my Pololu 8x2 LCD in the mail, and for the life of me, cannot figure out how to wire it up! I’ve looked everywhere but no luck! The arduino playground has some examples and libraries, but not for this particular model. Can somebody help me out here?


Have you looked at the datasheet we link to from the resources tab of the product page?


It explains what the fourteen pins are, and hopefully that will make it clear how to use it with the Arduino LCD library.

Yes, the pin out is the same as a 16x2.

That’s great! I’m glad you got it working.
