MicroMite 2.8″ LCD BackPack *KIT* (without TFT)
This version of the MicroMite LCD BackPack kit EXCLUDES the TFT – ideal if you already have your own ILI9341 Touch TFT screen.
NOTE: A Version 2 PCB is now available incorporating three main new additions: 1> A built-in USB interface, 2> A built-in firmware programmer, 3> Software controllable (PWM) backlight brightness
This is the MicroMite LCD BackPack KIT as featured in EPE’s May 2017 edition (and in Silicon Chip February 2016).
It comes complete with all PCB components required to assemble a working module but DOES NOT INCLUDE the 2.8″ Touch TFT screen.
NOTE: You will need a USB-to-Serial adaptor to communicate with this module from a computer.
