The mbed development platform is an interesting online method of working with boards based around the ARM style of microcontrollers, and several of these boards have I/O pins laid out in the same way as the Arduino Uno and compatible boards, which opens them up to wide variety of hardware.
One example of this is out LCD Keypad shield, which is now very easy to use with ST Nucleo boards and mbed thanks to the work by Mihail Stoyanov and his mbed LCD library. With this integrated into your project it's possible to simply drop in our LCD and use it without any effort.
Looking for a rapid-use LCD for your Arduino or compatible projects such as the mbed above? Save time and move forward with the Freetronics LCD & Keypad shield which contains a bright 16x2 character LCD and five buttons that can be read from only one analog input pin:
