Template for creating new programs for the LPC4088 Display Module

Dependencies:   DMBasicGUI DMSupport

Fork of lpc4088_displaymodule_hello_world by EmbeddedArtists AB

A minimal example showing how to initialize the display module and draw a message on the display.

This project can be selected as a template when creating a new project based on the LPC4088 Display Module.

Information

This project works on both the 4.3" and 5" display modules.

This is what it looks like:
