Re: Best driver for ili9341 display

I am currently actively considering supporting the ili9341 I hope you do, its a very popular and reasonably good value TFT display. I have and still am using them a lot in the arduino world, with SPI interface. AFAIK the most popular touch controller is resistive XPT2046 with SPI interface. There s...

Re: Official touch display with ESP32.

low cost way to build projects Its not a low cost display at £28.80 each in micropython store. I understand that Damian needs to make money somewhere, but ... For majority of hobbyists ILI9341 or similar TFT derivatives from Aliexpress is the way to go. Would also be good to have full numeric keypa...

Re: Beta of Thonny 3.3 with several MP-related improvements

Thanks for an update.
Have been using Thonny with uPython boards for a fairly long time without major issues.
Very easy and quick productivity on Windows environment.

Windows 10 antivirus complained as unsafe when downloading exe, had to create an exception, have reported it as safe.

Re: MQBoard - Micro-Framework for MicroPython Boards Managed via MQTT

Impressive development with emphases on reliable remote access. Well done and keep up a good work. I have been avoiding MQTT due to network reliability risk of having to relay on single WiFi AP and single non redundant broker. I guess it should be possible to implement MQTT network with a backup WiF...

Re: uart.read() error with PYBD-SF6W

Also, the PYBD is quite a bit faster than the pyboard 1.1, so if you call uart.read before the data has actually arrived back from the servo, then you'll get None, because the data just isn't there yet. Is it really that hard for developers to implement a callback functionality for UART, both Rx an...

Re: Question about the dht module (and maybe some more)

DHT22 data sheet.

Specified sampling rate (0.5Hz or 2 seconds).

I guess you can test and confirm actual sampling rate, by observing the rate of change in readings?

Re: New uasyncio version

Many applications run unchanged Makes one wonder why compatibility with Cpython wasn't followed from the beginning? Peter has done a good job in supporting this stuff with documentation and promotion. But for someone like me that is not a proficient python programmer, understanding and dealing with...
