mbed LPC1768 and LCD example

by shedboy71

In this example we connect an LCD to our mbed LPC1768 and display some text on it, we use a library to do most of the hard work here so our development is made easy by the TEXT LCD library.

The schematic shows how to connect up the 16×2 LCD to the mbed LPC1768
