micro:bit using an LCD display with MicroPython and SPI #MicroPython #CircuitPython
I never thought a Micro:bit would be powerful enough to drive a TFT display – even a 1.8" one. Thanks to Adafruit libraries being open source, I could figure out how to do it in Micropython! More info here: https://t.co/2rVu5XRdhBpic.twitter.com/aE79FriczO
Greg posts on Twitter (above) and via blog a project to connect a TFT LCD display to a micro:bit. A CircuitPython library ported to MicroPython was just the thing to get pixels bursting on the display when other methods failed.
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
