Freetronics LCD Keypad Shield now compatible with mbed and Freescale FRDM-64F

Although a variety of our products are designed for use with our Arduino-compatible products and so on, a growing range of development boards for non-Atmel microcontrollers are adopting the Arduino-style physical features such as shield compatibility - such as Freescale's Freedom line of ARM Cortex boards that use the mbed online IDE.

We're now happy to note that enthusiasts from this area have published the code required to use our LCD Keypad Shield with the Freescale board under the mbed environment, which makes using this convenient shield a breeze with this powerful Freescale platform.

For mbed users, the library can be imported into your online or external IDE from this page. And for more, we're on facebookGoogle+, and twitter - so follow us for news and product updates as well.

Looking for a rapid-use LCD for your Arduino or compatible development boards such as the Freescale example 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 analogue input pin:
