MC1602F7-FWLW 2 x 16 with white edge-backlight

This LCD is manufactured by Everbouquet and contains the standard HD44780 controller interface.
What makes this LCD special is its white background light which is always on when the display is powered. This gives it a feeling of high quality in comparison to the more typical "coffee machine" types with green/yellow background light. The white LEDs used are however more expensive, meaning that its price is also higher.

Figures 1 and 2 show the LCD from above and below - notice that it is fairly low profile.

Figure 3

Figure 3 shows the LCD in a typical application, whereby a 14 pin connector has been soldered to the board to establish a connection to a processor (in 4-bit or 8-bit mode). For details of driving the display see the µTasker LCD user's guide.
