This is a 16 character by 2 line display with a cool RGB backlight with NEGATIVE characters, with the standard HD44780 chipset. NEGATIVE means that the background is dark and the character dots illuminate with the color of the backlight. The RGB backlight can provide a wide selection of colors by combining the Red, Green and Blue backlights.
It works great with any microcontroller (just google AVR LCD, PIC LCD) and it is very easy to interface with Arduino/Freeduino boards using the LiquidCrystal Library
This LCD has 8-bit parallel interface. It is possible to use all 8 bits plus 3 control signals or 4 bits plus the control signals.
