Arduino Liquid Crystal Display


I got my Arduino UNO working with a 1602 LCD display (16x2). Just a simple "Hello World" message and a counter for now. This build uses the LiquidCrystal library from Arduino's website. The library allows you to use any LCD display that is supported by the Hitachi HD44780 driver. The example sketch contained in the library is what I'm using to display "Hello World" with. Thanks Limor Fried at Pro Trinket. All for now.
