I needed a display for daylight visibility and both the breakout board along with Sharp (128*128) memory LCD. worked like a charm.The sources and documentation provided were of nice quality. Overall happy with the product. Have ordered couple of more today from the seller.
It took so long to find exactly like this product. I needed to extend flex cables to get access to the device easily. This made it possible. Quality is good, and it also has testing connection to each line that helped to verify the connectivity.
There is no documentation attached to this product. But, it is obvious to know how to use this product, and documentation was not needed.
The board works exactly as expected and I like the fact the creator offers different setup options. It is a great board for prototyping. The part was shipped rapidly and arrive quickly. I was not expecting such fast service. The documentation is good, but I think it could be just a tiny bit better. I didn't have any specific communication with the seller as everything went smoothly.
Worked great! Needed to rapidly prototype a system and the BREAKOUT board was "key" to getting it done quickly. Ordered it Tuesday, had it in my hands by the weekend and showed it to my client on Monday! Thank you so much! Please update your advertising to include support for this other Sharp LCD as well.
Note: I modded the "SCS" signal because my Cortex-M4 MCU (Atmel SAMG55) only puts out a negative chip select and the Sharp LCD requires a positive chip select. Maybe add a footprint for an optional single logic gate on this line in the future?
I liked that I could mount the BREAKOUT underneath the LCD (hidden inside my case), with the ribbon cable bending in a 180 arc. I liked that the pin header was not soldered in, giving end user a choice on which side to mount.
While this breakout board has positions for the extra voltage boost components to be fitted at a later date if needed, it would make a lot more sense to actually offer this board with those comps fitted, save the headaches that result afterwards.
Yes, the board becomes a little more expensive to buy, but immediately useable! With the correct mods, this board is perfectly usable with the 2.7" Sharp memory LCD.
Thanks for your comments. It's all based on demand- up to this point there has not been much for the boost version, since all newer small Sharp displays are 3.3V . Carrying added cost of these parts would change the price rather significantly, so I've opted not to affect all those who do not need it. In designing in a Linear Tech boost converter, minimum power consumption was a main goal, but they are not cheap parts :(
The Sharp Memory LCD is an amazing high density display. Unfortunately that small ribbon connector is a pain to solder, especially if you are prototyping. This small, well designed, breakout board solves those problems. And in both cases they arrived very quickly.
