This is a basic 16 character by 2 line display with a snazzy black background with white characters. Utilizes the extremely common HD44780 parallel interface chipset (datasheet).
Interface code is freely available. You will need ~11 general I/O pins to interface to this LCD screen. Includes white LED backlight.
Dimensions: 3.15" x 1.425"
Would it be fairly straightforward to connect this up to a Genie 14 pin microcontroller or will I need to have some sort of driver chip between the microcontroller and the LCD . Thanks

Hi Jim, After looking into this the Genie 14 pin microcontroller should be compatible as it has 11 I/O pins. However you would need to code the Genie chip in Genie Basic, and unfortunately we wouldn’t be able to help with the programming on this chip.
I would like to use this with the Arduino uno to display a message when a servo moves. the easy programme example on the Arduino website shows the LCD with only 10 pins connected. would this LCD work with only 10 pins connected.? thanks

Yes it would work with only 10 pins connected.
