The main controller IC comes preprogrammed with both the Arduino bootloader and the Serial LCD firmware; all it needs is assembly. Once assembled you can send it commands right away. The kit comes with a white on black 16x2 LCD display and everything shown in the pictures.
We've also broken out all of the ATmega328 pins so you can even use the kit as an Arduino compatible microcontroller. In order to upload new code to the LCD Kit via bootloader you'll need an FTDI Basic Breakout and have the Board setting in Arduino on 'Arduino Duemilanove or Nano w/ ATmega328.'
Check the github page below for instructions on how to use the kit. The source code is also hosted over there, if you want to take a look.
If you are interested in Internet of Things (IoT) or M2M projects check our open source sensor platform Waspmote which counts with more than 100 sensors available to use 'off the shelf', a complete API with hundreds of ready to use codes and a low consumption mode of just 0.7µA to ensure years of battery life.
