Ladyada is working on some LCD interfacing today, and thought maybe some people would find my super-lucky FPC adapter handy so she is going to get some of them manufactured for the shop. When using this adapter board we guarantee you will roll 7’s and select the right SPI mode the first time! Coming soon!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

It would be awesome if this design were updated to 50-pin+ because 24-bit LCDs with backlight on the flex connector usually have more than 40 pins. Otherwise, definitely filling a gap in breakout boards. I like the multi-pitch feature so I only need to have a couple of these boards to cover all of the usual pitches.
How about some tips on how to solder the ribbon connector (techniques, tools, temps, etc.) Looks tricky.
