Almost everything can be created with Arduino main boards and Arduino Shields overlays. Arduino is an Italian producer of programmable electronics that have appealed to millions of people around the world. It is used in preschools and schools, as well as in laboratories and huge enterprises. If you have never heard before about Arduino, please – be careful! Once you bought your first kit, you will love these programmable electronics forever. How to choose right Arduino Shields? Basically, it is important to know that the scope of functionality depends largely on two factors. First of all, what counts is the idea and programming skills (which are very easy to learn with Arduino!). Secondly, individual options become possible due to the expansion of the starter kit (or just central Arduino printed circuit board – PCB). In order to do this, you need to purchase individual overlays, which are professionally called Arduino Shields. In this category you will find the best Arduino Shields for communication - Arduino keyboards and LCD displays. All products are fully compatible with Arduino. They can be used to implement various types of projects.
Module with a joystick and buttons connected directly to the ports on Arduino. It is supplied with2-axes lever and six buttons. It has built-in I2C connector, Bluetooth, nRF24L01 and slot of the Nokia 5110 display. It works with voltages of 3.3 V and 5 V to choose by the switch.

In this category you will find the best overlays for Arduino, which will ensure great communication with other components. Information visualization is very important when building more advanced projects. What's more, visualization of information for the user can be implemented in electronic devices in many ways.
Arduino's most popular direct communication methods include two types of devices - Arduino keyboards and displays. The first nowadays are starting to give way to the latter, but they are still useful. They will work especially if you program a lot and create a device compatible with applications for mobile phones or a computer. In turn, LCD displays also have control keyboards (touch screen). It is a solution that is most often used because it provides great work efficiency, looks good and takes up little space.
If you are thinking of buying an Arduino display, then it is worth exploring its features at the beginning. In this case, the display is not just a screen. It is also an Arduino Shield overlay that is fully programmable and compatible with other parts.
In technical terms, attention is paid to 7-segment displays, LEDs and liquid crystal displays (LCD), which have the greatest possibilities of displaying information. Information visualization is carried out through liters, numbers, punctuation marks and special characters. Depending on the model, individual hardware may have different graphic symbols embedded. To facilitate the design of your devices, we have prepared an offer of Arduino Shield overlays equipped with a programmable LCD display and a push-button keyboard. These are top-class devices that will make it easier to control other components!
There are many types of Arduino displays. The basic variant is the LCD display built into the Arduino Shield, which consists of two lines of 16 characters. What's more, you can display a maximum of 32 characters on this display. The devices presented in this category are very easy to use. Using the display is easy thanks to the free Arduino ‘Liquid Crystal’ library.
The use of Arduino displays and keyboards is very wide. For example, writing just a few lines of code will allow you to design a menu for using a CNC machine with the option of navigating using a button keyboard. The button keyboard communicates with Arduino via a resistor divider connected to one of the inputs of the analog-to-digital converter. All this will be possible by using the presented Arduino Shields.
Do not delay any longer with a decision! Arduino Shields displays and keyboards will give you great possibilities. Create exactly these projects you have dream about. For any questions –
