2.8″ LCD BackPack Version 2 *PCB*
The MicroMite LCD BackPack version 2 builds on the success of the extremely popular MicroMite LCD BackPack. Now with the ability to control the backlight brightness via software (PWM); however, its main new feature is an on-board MicroBridge circuit meaning it has a built-in USB interface; as well as having the ability to reprogram the MMBASIC firmware whenever new versions are released. This truly is a future-proof design at a fantastically low cost.
This is the PCB only. A complete kit, and also fully assembled modules, are available upon request.
This is the new MicroMite LCD BackPack PCB (as featured in the May 2017 edition of Silicon Chip).
PCB dimensions: 86mm x 50mm
Four mounting holes are provided to allow a 2.8″ TFT touch screen to be bolted directly onto this PCB (using 12mm stand-offs)
Note: There are three SMD components. The USB socket, and two transistors (if using the PWM software controlled backlight). A PCB option is available upon request with these three items pre-soldered.
