This Adafruit Pi Plate makes it easy to use an RGB 16 x 2 Character LCD. These LCDs do require quite a few digital pins, 6 to control the LCD and then another 3 to control the RGB backlight for a total of 9 pins. With this in mind, to make it easier for people to get these LCD into their projects a devised Pi plate that lets you control a 16x2 Character LCD, up to 3 backlight pins and 5 keypad pins using only the two I²C pins on the R-Pi. The best part is you do not really lose those two pins either, since you can stick i2c-based sensors, RTCs, etc and have them share the I²C bus.
