Instructions

  • Place the display face down.
  • Insert 2 x 7 header pins into positions 1-14, short end first. DO NOT SOLDER. On 16 pin displays, leave 15 & 16 open.
  • Insert 2 single header pins into position A and K, short end first. DO NOT SOLDER.
  • Place the adapter board on the pins. Display pin 1 to board pin 1.
  • There are two positions for A and K - move the single pins around for the best fit with your display - there appears to be no standard locations for these on the displays.
  • Solder the headers to the adapter board. DO NOT SOLDER TO THE DISPLAY.
  • Lift the adapter board off the display.
  • Trim off the long ends of the header pins with wire cutters. Eye protection is advised - those things fly!
  • Insert the I2C module into the adapter board - on the other side from where you had the display. The GND pin on the I2C module is closest to the 14-pin header. Look at the picture.
  • Solder 1 pin on the I2C module, then straighten it up. Then solder the other 15 pins.
  • Trim off the long ends of the header pins with wire cutters.
  • Position the display back on its headers.
  • Solder the 16 pins to the display.
