Raspberry Pi Journal #25

Adafruit LCD with Keypad kit

Nothing more to report, but I soldered the kit. At one point, I thought that I installed the 18 pin header wrong, but a quick check with the pdf manual on-screen (with color) instead of printed out shows that it's correct. How come the pins are so tall? The bottom pins are rather short.

I had trouble soldering the pins so close to the display.

I wonder if they make a special case for it?

Too late that I realize if I made a slim Raspberry Pi, I can just solder the GPIO directly, instead of using Header. Of course, that makes it a dedicated unit.

No time to download software. Will have to do the testing some other time.
