More fun getting to know the FRDM-KL25Z Cortex-M0+ development board. This time I wanted to learn about interfacing an HD44780 compatible text LCD.

I have assembled the first seven of ten DC-DC boards for a work project using as many Odroid C1+ SBCs. As you might know the Odroid C1+ demands a 5VDC power supply, and whilst this is true, my project also requires 12VDC and to be driven by a single laptop style PSU.
