Re: Pyboard+Micropython questions

Be sure to check out the Raspberry Pi. It is essentially a full computer designed for learning. Python is it's primary learning language but it supports too many programming systems and protocols to mention. It's GPIO pins are available similar to that of a micro controller. It is also very inexpens...

Re: Wiring lcd160cr with side headers to pyboard?

MicroPython support (Christine) came to the rescue. She provided the proper pin connections to ensure that the board is operational: // On the right side of your pyboard you'll find the Pins named: X4, Y9, Y10, GND and V+. If you put a LCD right next to it, you'll find the same names of Pins on the ...

Re: Wiring lcd160cr with side headers to pyboard?

I must have bricked my display somehow. I have never gotten a pixel out of it. :(

I may experiment more this weekend.

Re: Wiring lcd160cr with side headers to pyboard?

Thank you to everyone for your support. My vision is poor enough that it is difficult to follow dense schematics. My field of view is very small. The pin specifications on the previous post is most helpful.

Thank you!

Re: Wiring lcd160cr with side headers to pyboard?

I am referencing this photo in the documentation: https://store.micropython.org/product/L ... 1.0#image7

In that photo, it appears five lines are connected. Is that sufficient to run the display? I will try to compare between the photo, the side pins and the ones on the bottom.

Re: Wiring lcd160cr with side headers to pyboard?

I am trying to decipher which pins are actually necessary to drive the display. I would like to use the minimal number of jumpers.

Thank you,

Wiring lcd160cr with side headers to pyboard?

I recently received an lcd160cr mounted in one of the aluminum cases. The tutorial indicates jumpers connecting to the pyboard but it is not clear for my poor eyes. I don't want to fry my new display, what are the connections points for the side mounted headers.

Thank you,
