Boost versions of Sharp breakout are back in stock
Update December 2017 New, lower price is in effect!
Update September 2016: Added option to install 5V boost. Note: as of July 2016 all our stock is now green boards, not purple as shown on the pictures.
This is a simple breakout board for Sharp's new Memory LCD displays ( LS013B4DN02,LS013B4DN04, LS013B7DH03 as well as LS027B7DH01). It brings all pins to a 0.1" header and provides necessary caps and resistors. The new revision A2 also adds an optional boost converter for those wanting to run 5V display from sub 3.3V supply. The footprints are there, but parts are not populated to save cost. This is an open source hardware design under CC BY SA license. The display is not included as there are now several types of them, and depending on your needs you would be using a 5V or a 3.3V version or even the larger 2.7" version. Contact me and I'll point you to a source of displays. - Made in USA, including bare PCBs, assembly and test. Board size is 1.3"x1.5"

I am a one man shop, designing and making boards and kits. Usually they start as something I need for my own project, but with an eye on making them available to others. In my day job, I design complex electronic systems.
If you need a variation of what I offer or a completely new design from scratch- I do that too!
What you see is what you get. You as a buyer are responsible for making sure these kits fit a particular purpose you have in mind. If you have questions, or need more information- feel free to ask before buying. If you need shipping option that differs from offered-contact me before placing the order
