i am new on the forums, and also a beginner with the Arduino.
I have some basic electronics understanding, and i have some experience with soldering components and using the basic equipments.
I found out about the Arduino only a few months ago.
I have a question,
We have the "official" Arduino 14x2 LCD shield right ? it works flawlessly with the Arduino board and 4bit lcd library.
now- what if i have a 20x4 LCD , right.. i had followed a tutorial online to connect it manually to my Arduino and write on the screen with the 4bit lcd library.
but what if i want to build a shield ? so it is easier for me to connect/disconnect it from my arduino each and every time instead of manually connecting wires and components every time.
did anyone here had drawn a PCB ? or have a clue about building this ?
the one tutorial i've found does only show how to manually connect the wires and components, but not a drawing of how the wiring is being made from a top-angle view.
also- is it possible (if we are designing a board) to try and integrate the small keypad like we have on the DFRobot 14x2 LCD shield?
any help will be much appreciated !
