I2C LCD & Keypad Shield

Post by andrewduncan » Tue Feb 21, 2012 11:18 am

I love the LCD & Keypad Shield, but it doesn't play nicely with the USBDroid and has a conflict with the microSD card on the EtherTen. It would be nice if Freetronics made an I2C version of the shield that only used say pins A0 (for the buttons), A4 and A5 (for I2C). Then there would be no conflict with either the USBDroid or the EtherTen and it would only use three analog pins.

[edit] I forgot about a pin for the backlight
